Unit 2 - Dino - musicology - Disney's DINOSAUR
In this unit we will expand on the identification of DYNAMICS in musical backgrounds. The students will again listen to how instrumental music can set the mood and help tell the story. The booklet contains original musical pieces that provide facts about various dinosaurs and reinforce the work that they are doing in their classroom on this subject.
Unit 3 - The Planets
If time permits, we will explore the heavens, musically, with Holst's instrumental piece, THE PLANETS and Disney's animated musical, HERCULES.
Again, the booklets contain original songs designed to teach facts about the planets and reinforce classroom curriculum. The students will have another opportunity to review their musical vocabulary.
