Musical Instruments and Their Families Cards

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 6 pages | Years: 3 - 6

A set of 48 cards for students to match musical instruments with the family of the orchestra to which they belong.

Print and laminate the set of cards.

In pairs or small groups, students play a game of ‘Snap’ or ‘Memory’ by matching the cards to an identical instrument or the family to which it belongs.

To play ‘Go Fish,’ students aim to form pairs consisting of a musical instrument and its family. When requesting cards from other players, students can either ask for a specific instrument or the name of a family.
