Venn Diagram for Peter and the Wolf

Posted May 04, 2011 by Paula Pendleton

This lesson provides students with an opportunity to listen to music and express their feelings through describing words, as they learn how to express themselves verbally. Using Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf, we compare the music of two characters at a time and complete a Venn diagram of describing words. Students select their favorite character, draw a picture of the character, and write a sentence or two about the character, using the descriptive language from our Venn diagrams, as they develop vocabulary and enhance their writing.
