Composing and Performing for the Animals

The Grade 3/4 students enjoyed listening to and learning about Camille Saint Saen’s “Carnival of the Animals” so much they decided to compose and perform their own works. Working in small groups, they selected an animal, then chose instruments to perform a piece of music to tell a story about that animal, using elements of music including melody, rhythm, tempo and dynamics. It was a wonderful creative project that demonstrated both their cooperative and musical skills.
