My Favorite Steady Beat and Rhythm Lesson Activity: Organized Chaos. This works great with almost any age, especially elementary, for introducing and practicing new rhythms and reinforcing steady beat. So simple and yet so effective!
This is an awesome way to get students that may be reluctant to use rhythm sticks or do a traditional music lesson to participate in a rhythm activity! It is a good way to reach out to sports-oriented kids and it is fun!
