This is a fun cut and paste activity to assess your students composition skills at ANY LEVEL! These 50 Pop composition activities are designed to be a life long tool, as the rhythms, staff, and time signatures range in difficulty as you progress from page 1 to page 50.
Step 1. Compose.
Students will be given a popsicle with a top section, and a bottom section. The top section provides them the rhythms, & rhythm values they must use for their composition. The rhythms range in difficulty from page 1 to 50. Students must then use the rhythms prompted in the top section for their composition below. Treble and Bass clef Pops are provided.
Step 2. Color & Cut.
Students may then color the outline of their Pop Composition. Once they finish coloring, they should cut out the popsicle as a whole.
Step 3. Glue.
Students then glue a popsicle stick to the back, bottom of the popsicle cut out. These are perfect decorations to be hung on bulletin boards inside or outside your classroom, to show & give ownership for students and their progress!
