Christmas Camp- Week 2 in Review

Camps and Workshops

This was our last week of Christmas camp. I thought I would share what we did this week.

First we started off with an interval game called Voyage of the Intervals. I separated the kids into 3 groups and they worked together as a team.

Afterwards we played “Pieces of Eight” a customizable powerpoint trivia game that I bought from a teacher from TeachersPayTeachers website. I made it a “music” style trivia game and created the categories: Notes, Rhythm, Dynamics, Articulations, Technique and Christmas. In this game occasionally a bonus round will pop up. Bonus rounds allows a team to receive a bonus point if they are first to answer correctly. Sometimes the bonus rounds are doing something silly such as this… (Can you figure out what they are doing?)

Pat your Head, Rub your Tummy

After our trivia game, we took a refreshment break. Students brought in goodies to share…

After we had some goodies it was time for a Musical Treasure Hunt! This was one of my favorite activities at camp. I created a powerpoint of all the clues but also had clue cards along with what they were supposed to find hiding around the room. In a separate post I will post more details and share the powerpoint that I made. In the meantime, enjoy the pictures of the hunting…

Then before they left until I see them again in 2013, I gave them their Christmas gift from me. Here’s a sneak peak. (More details coming in a separate post…)
