Rainbow Rhythm Composition Project


This resources is a composition project ideal for middle- to upper-level elementary grades.

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.
