Musical concept : Intensity Loud /Soft
Prerequisites : Every child in your class should know at least one song.
Setting the scene
“Today, we’re going to play at finding a small hidden object. The soft and loud sounds will give us clues to where the object is hidden.”
By asking them questions about the soft or loud levels of intensity they explored in the previous module: The Musical Detective – Part 1.
Tell the children that they will have to sing to guide the detective to find the hidden object :
Give the small object to one of the children and ask them to hide it between their crossed legs. Explain that this child is the keeper of the object.
Repeat the exercise with other songs the group knows.
Hide the object somewhere else in the classroom. (There’s no keeper in this version of the game.)
Include sound intensities (soft/ loud) when learning new songs. For example, ask the children to sing the song’s chorus loudly and the verses softly.
Play the second game in the Mazaam app’s World of Lynx with the children.
