Move and Freeze

Post date: Oct 8, 2012 4:12:24 PM

Here we are doing a move and freeze activity in music class. Movement and music are connected and doing movement activities in music class can help students with body awareness, rhythm, and expression. In this activity, students listened to a song and danced with scarves, moving in all of the space around them. When the music stopped, they froze like statues. Then, we did it the other way around. I told students to audiate the song in their heads while they moved their scarves, and to freeze when the music came back on. This challenged the students to move to the style of music even when it was not playing.
