Xylophone Event

The students participated in a xylophone event during our Olympic unit. Using their knowledge of the musical alphabet, students put the xylophone bars back onto the xylophone in the correct order. When they were finished, one member from the team hit the gong. It was fun and a great way to test their knowledge of musical notes names.
