The following lesson ideas are suitable for Primary School and Elementary School children. They include singing, animation, poetry analysis and writing, music analysis, instrument making, art projects and play ideas.
The lessons ideas are based around six animations and songs, which the children can watch and learn to sing. The songs can be accompanied by the animations, a CD of synthesised sounds (available here), or a chamber orchestra (parts available here).
The poetry in the animations is from all around the world including the UK, Trinidad (Carnival), China (Mid-Autumn Moon Festival), and India (Diwali).
You can watch all six animations in one video here, or watch them separately as part of six separate lessons below.
