2nd Grade Macrobeat/Microbeat Activity

posted Apr 17, 2015, 10:40 AM by Erika Novoselich
This is a video of some second graders showing how to switch between the macrobeat and the microbeat in duple meter. A student in the middle of the circle determines which beat the other students are moving/chanting to. The large hula hoop represents the macrobeat (the big beat) and the smaller hula hoop represents the microbeat (the little beat).
