Teacher Notes (not visible to students)

This is a fun play-along medley of 30-second snippets of favorites like Queen's We Will Rock You, Kool and the Gang's Celebration, Village People's YMCA, Panic! at the Disco's High Hopes, and We Are the Champions, utilizing quarter, half, and eighth notes and quarter rests, along with a dance break. It is great for an opening day activity or a celebration of music right before a break! The students can also use this activity for retrieval practice or assessment of the rhythm patterns. On the final slide, the video is embedded for them to perform for fun before they submit the activity to the teacher. Check out the additional Body Percussion video here: https://youtu.be/KwaVRX7qJUg
