This is an activity you can print and cut out, to play on a table or spread out on the floor.
The semibreves go for 4 beats, minims for 2, crotchets for 1, and quavers for 1/2. All values are depicted by their size, so each bar of 4 beats can be tested by measuring it with a 4 beat semibreve card.
How many levelshigh can you make a tower, if it can only have 4 beats on each level?
How many different combinations are there if you start with one quaver?
Find a partner and challenge them to a race - make up your own rules (for instance; no minims allowed, make 3 bars of 3/4 time!)
Clap back the rhythm you create! Maybe you can make a tune to go with it!
