This resource is a great series on lesson plans centered around rhythm. Easy to use, teachers can gradually introduce duple and compound rhythms, syncopation and the Kodaly rhythm syllables. Each lesson includes a summary text, listening examples and exercises.
This resources is a composition project ideal for middle- to upper-level elementary grades. Students compose and assign rhythms to different colors of the rainbow, which they then rearrange into four-bar phrases. Students can then perform their rainbow rhythm compositions, and submit an audio/video recording (and the accompanying worksheet) for a performance assessment. The project encourages students to “get some fresh air and exercise by going for a walk outside,” which helps promote their well-being.
