Games and Activities for Boomwhackers
By Ellen Foncannon
An innovative teaching and group activity package for use with Boomwhackers tuned percussion tubes. 31 fun-filled games incorporating music, drama, and movement; with a coordinating CD of music to use for 8 of the games. Organized into sections, each section more difficult than the last. Each game lists the tubes needed, number of players needed, related CD tracks (when applicable), objectives, pre-game prep, directions, and discovery questions. Some games also list possible variations.
Most of the activities use the diatonic set of Boomwhackers. One activity needs the chromatic set and one activity needs the bass diatonic set. Many activities use any available tubes, or use multiple sets of matching tubes.
