Rhapsody in Blue

Building on their foundational knowledge of different types of lines, first grade students listened to music and drew lines that matched what they heard. A staccato beat was represented by a dotted line. A diagonal line might have been drawn to illustrate when the music went up or down. A dark line might represent loud music and a lighter line could show softer tones.

After practicing, the children listened to “Rhapsody in Blue.” They imagined they were whistling the song and drew lines to match the variety of sounds in Gershwin’s music.
