New Music Educational Project My Ancient Harp Playing [Creativity]
Each student will receive half a sheet of paper and we will suggest drawing freely a face expressing one of the following moods/emotions (none of the students should know/see what the others have drawn).
students will be asked to write their names on their drawings and then we will collect the
drawings. Now we will ask each student to try and describe the mood he has drawn in sounds
(it is recommended to demonstrate a happy motif, a sad motif and a
Now we will ask each student to try and describe the mood he has drawn in sounds (it is recommended to demonstrate a happy motif, a sad motif and a crying" motif).
The teacher will then stand in front of the class with the drawings in his/her hands so that he/her alone can see them and ask the student whose name is on the first drawing to play the tune he has written (composed?) for his drawing. When he has done, the students will be asked which mood the composer was trying to express, after which his drawing may be shown to everyone. This is repeated for each student (and drawing).
We may elaborate the game so that it includes scoring. For example, success can be determined if at least 2/3 of the tunes have clearly represented the drawings. We might write a score of 10 points when most of the moods have been identified by the class. We can also withhold a score in case most of the class did not guess correctly - because the tune did not describe the drawing appropriately (as judged by most listeners).
We can later develop this activity and describe seasons or characters in a short story we will read (for example fables) or animals (such as a turtle, a lion, a monkey, a bird, etc.)
