Sheryl Welles has lots of tips for teaching music. Here's a picture of a game that would be fun to use to teach about composers. Write facts about each composer on the piano keys and cut them up. Mix the keys up with other composer keys and see if students can match the keys to the correct composer AND put them in order to look like a keyboard.
