Autumn Leaves Song with Movement and Art!

I love having children create art to inspire or represent creative movement. 

Last week I shared a fun autumn song that I am doing with my grade 2 classes.

 I thought it would be fun to create autumn leaves to serve as inspiration for movement. The movement ideas will be used in conjunction with a student created soundscape in order to create a B section for "Autumn Leaves".

First, students came up with a list of autumn colours. Next, they came up with different examples of line. After the two lists were compiled, I demonstrated and explained our art project.

The kids loved this activity and were really excited to see how it related to Music!
The next class we talked about and explored different ways to move the lines on our leaves. The kids demonstrated ideas for each other and then came up with a movement that represented their leaf. 

We had so much fun and the movement looked beautiful!
