A Lego Rhythm Activity
This is the wonderful Mrs Durrant (her name rhymes with “currant”) who has a great way for us to learn about rhythm patterns using Lego! Get ready to take part. There is lots for you to do while you watch the lesson.
Do lesson 1 first. The lesson is about 10 minutes. When you finish the video, you could use Lego to make up your own rhythm in 4 beats like Mrs Durrant. Remember she uses 4 blue dots and each dot is one beat. You could use 4 coasters or cut 4 shapes from paper for your beats. Each beat can have 1 Lego brick (“ta”), 2 (“titi”) or none (a rest).
Practise clapping your rhythm or try playing it on an instrument or on something you can find at home like 2 wooden spoons tapped together.
Now try lesson 2. It is about 10minutes long.
