This educational video and accompanying worksheet is a listening activity that doubles as a vehicle for teaching early multiplication skills while honing musical skills.
Students watch the video and listen to rhythmic patterns played on various untuned percussion instruments. For each example, they identify which graphic notation sample matches what they hear. They cut and paste the correct pattern onto their worksheet (below) and identify both the number of groups and the number of sounds in each group. This is a unique way to reinforce the ability to differentiate between groups, and items within groups.
