Still needing some ideas for music lessons about Thanksgiving? We have you covered! This week on Music Minutes from Musicplay, we are looking at some select ideas for Thanksgiving activities for the classroom.

The activities we cover this week are:

  • A Vocal Assessment Rubric
  • Other recommendations found on Musicplay Online:
    • ‘I Like Turkey’ Musicplay Grade 1 #23
    • ‘Five Fat Turkeys’ Musicplay Grade 1 #25
    • ‘Thanks a Lot!’ Musicplay Grade 2 #15
    • ‘I’m Thankful’ Musicplay Grade 3 #14
  • Number Concentration, as an alternative game to play if you don’t teach Thanksgiving
