The fast-paced game of basketball meets rhythm in this creative, cooperative activity that reinforces steady beat and sight reading. Featuring jump balls, free throws, three-pointers, steals, fouls, and an optional shot clock, a game of Rhythm Basketball will have your students reading and performing rhythms, and listening to and transcribing them.
Perfect to review or assess your students' knowledge of steady beat and rhythm while helping to build a solid music foundation, Rhythm Basketball includes 64 rhythm-pattern flashcards on brightly colored cardstock and a mixed-media CD. In addition to audio tracks to help facilitate game play, the CD includes a PowerPoint® of a complete game, featuring more than 150 rhythm patterns that are ready for tip-off anytime! (Grades 3-6)
