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). There is also a conductor version of the video for multimedia live performances.
The poetry in the animations is written by school children about travelling to and from the UK (Birmingham, Elmdon, Scotland), Italy (Milan, Rome), Spain (Barcelona, Madrid) France (Paris, Lyon) and Germany (Munich and Frankfurt).
You can watch all six animations in one video here, or watch them separately as part of six separate lessons below.
