Bring technology into your classroom with a unique and compelling multidisciplinary unit on musical genres. The class creates a musical theme park and groups design lands for different musical genres. Team members research their genre and then create a blue print or model of their land which features a restaurant, souvenir shop, background music, and costumed talent appropriate for their genre.
- Establish learning centers when groups display the projects
- Expand into a school-wide interdisciplinary project and have groups display their lands in a community event much like a science faire
- Although designed for younger learners the project is appropriate for any grade level as part of a study of music genres
- Encourages critical thinking by asking researchers to consider the factors the influence a music genre
