Walking Up the Scale

Activity Instructions:

Have children make a line. Pass out boomwhackers for children in pitches from C-G. Allow children to explore hitting them on the floor. Teacher asks “who has red? who has orange? etc. and make sure each child knows what color they have” Ask children to hit the boomwhacker on the ground when you say the name of the color they have. As they hit the boomwhacker on the ground, you also hit the same note/color on the xylophone. Then introduce song, saying color names and hitting xylophone note as children hit boomwhackers on the floor.
