Rock the Beat

Rock the Beat

Students will perform a repeating pattern of slow (macro) and fast (micro) beats to a 16-count phrase (two successive 8 counts). They will count the eight beats of each phrase out loud as they clap or march. This same assessment could also be used with first and second graders.

This item does not include a Student Booklet.
