6. Play music from other parts of the world.
Let students appreciate the different instruments and sounds they hear. Even when they are just walking through the door to start their day or during independent work time, you can allow them to enjoy music from around the world.
Incorporate another common core music activity, one that provides musical video clips, a matching game, written recall pages, and information about various countries and their musical instruments that they use. Students will learn over 30 different musical instruments from Japan, France, India, Spain, Brazil, Africa, Russia, and Italy! The video links included show the instruments in action!
