WILD Band Activities
Weather Impacted Learning Days - WILD!
7th and 8th grade band students should choose one activity from the following list to complete on a WILD Day:
Do you have your instrument with you at home? Time to practice!
Record a short practice session - Based on what we are currently working on in band, choose at least 2 lesson book lines or a section of concert music to practice and send Ms. Miller a video recording on Schoology. Practice it first before you send your recording, so your playing is as accurate as possible
Instrument left at school? No problem!
For each of these options, you can use your own paper and turn in your notes when we return to school, or submit your assignment on Schoology.
- How It's Made - Check out Ms. Miller's How It's Made playlist on YouTube and select at least two videos to watch. For each video you watch, type or jot down three interesting things you learned about how that instrument is made, for a total of six statements. Your facts need to be written in complete sentences with correct capitalization and punctuation.
- Instrument History Research - Choose any instrument in our band and do some digging into the history of that instrument--it can be the instrument you play, or another instrument of your choice. Write at least ONE PARAGRAPH of 4-5 sentences that answer the following questions about the instrument you chose:
- When was the instrument first built?
- What country is the instrument from?
- Who invented the instrument?
- How is the modern instrument you play different from its ancestor instruments?
- Include any other interesting research you found about the instrument you chose.
All assignments need to be written using complete sentences with correct punctuation and capitalization for full credit!
