RHMS Grade 1 students have been learning about story elements and character traits in language class. They learned that character traits can also be expressed through music and fine arts.
The students listened to Sergei Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf composition. They explored the different instruments that make us think and feel different things. The sounds matched various characters in the story.
Students then picked their own character from common books and described them using various traits. After that, they used Chrome Music lab to make their own songs and sounds to represent their choice.
They really enjoyed coming together to make well-known story book characters come to life using music!
