This fun and versatile hiding / finding game is great for:

  • Melodic improvisation. (Students can improvise a melody while singing directions to find an item.)
  • Working on directional terms. (E.g. high, low, up, down, left, right etc.)
  • Teaching the rhythmic element "too-oo-oo" (dotted minim / dotted half note).
  • Teaching 4/4 metre.
  • Finding an interval of an octave: "low so" to "so".
  • Working on singing an octave in tune!
  • Preparing and practising the melodic element "fa".
