Artie's Jazz Pack
Games and Activities for Teaching Jazz in the Classroom
By Artie Almeida
Activity pack with CD ?

This game and activity pack will provide you with the necessary materials to teach your students about jazz in an enjoyable and effective manner. Each component may be used by itself, or utilize the entire kit for a complete jazz instructional unit!

Classroom-tested for appeal and effectiveness, Artie's Jazz Pack introduces jazz terms with both flashcards and "Jazz Concentration" - it's the game you know but with a twist: students must match term to definition.

The game "Jazz Style Dials" utilizes the included CD to familiarize students with Blues, Ragtime, Boogie Woogie, Dixieland, Swing, Bebop, Cool Jazz, Rock 'n' Roll, Latin and Jazz Rock.

A second listening activity, "The Instruments of Jazz," teaches students to recognize both aurally and visually the instruments heard most frequently in the various styles of jazz.

There are also numerous reproducible worksheets about the history of jazz, many jazz greats and even a "WebVisit." The included teacher's guide outlines the process for each activity as well as extension ideas and features a timeline, a kid-friendly jazz listening list and suggestions for jazz-related children's literature. The pack also includes 36 copies of all the game boards and cards on colorful, sturdy card stock.
For grades 4-8.

Georgia 5th grade music standards address Jazz music and it corresponds with the 5th grade Georgia State Social Studies standards. I'm excited that it includes a listening CD!
