Teacher Notes (not visible to students)

This activity has been created for young musicians to develop their rhythm skills. It helps them keep a sense of beat/pulse and it encourages compositional skills. More body percussion icons/images can be added to increase difficulty. Students can also be asked to place two of the same items in some of the boxes to start getting a sense of one beat and half beats. Adapt according to your students needs. It can be used as a starter activity in a longer lesson or as a standalone short activity.
