A Quick Quiz Game for the Music Classroom
By Kris Kropff and Jeanette Morgan
For grades 3 - 8
The Five Facts in the title of this engaging, but simple game book are clues that are designed to reveal a musical word or term. A few students might know the word after the first clue (Wynton Marsalis is a famous player of this instrument) or the second (An ancient form of this instrument is a bugle). By the fifth clue (I am the smallest member of the brass family), every hand should be in the air. Read a few puzzles aloud as a review at the end of class or adapt and use these facts to create your own visuals, reproducibles or classroom materials. No matter how you use these facts, students are sure to have fun solving the puzzles. Topics include: instruments and families, musical styles, and classical and contemporary composers and performers.
