Line of Inquiry: How music and sounds are used to express feelings.
After the game we listened to portions of four pieces of music:
- Vivaldi - Four Seasons (Spring)
- Beethoven 7th Symphony
- Mozart - Figaro
- Bach - Toccato and Fugue
The children chose to paint to the music of Vivaldi and Bach. When we were listening to Vivaldi, Andy exclaimed "this is happy!" Olivia and Kamy agreed. Sasha added that the music was making her feel excited.
The Bach piece evoked different feelings. Aston "loved" the music. Olivia said "I like it too but it's scary!" Looking at the paintings, it was evident to see that the music moved the children in different ways.
