Halloween activity for Elementary Music using "In the Hall of the Mountain King" by Edvard Grieg to teach crescendo, accelerando, tempo, and mood in music. This Halloween activity is based on the National Standards for the Elementary Music class.
Your students will be challenged to turn the repetitive rhythm pattern used by Grieg into a fun way to play instruments.
So . . . turn off the lights, create a spooky mood, and have fun! Your students will ask for this activity long after Halloween.
