Rhythm Trash Cans

Trash Cans.jpg

This is the setup for my rhythm-teaching session. The kids will be divided into several groups. Each group will have to play the rhythms on the flash cards, and they will get two tries if needed. One point will be given per card. The team with the most points at the end wins.

It will be a pretty loud game, but it will be a fun way to reinforce rhythmic concepts. The cans are simply 35 gallon trash cans purchased from our local Lowes Hardware store. The mallets were purchased from an online music store.
