Listening Maps for many classic songs. Includes maps for Jupiter from The Planets (Holst), Rakes of Mallow (Anderson), Syncopated Clock (Anderson), In the Hall of the Mountain King (Grieg) and Finale from Carnival of the Animals (Saint-Saens). I used ALL these songs in my music classroom each year.
Carnival of the Animals by Saint Saens. (If I ever have kindergarten or first grade I am going to do an animal unit with them, but talk about strange animals like squids and okapi's and snails. Then, as a fun ending the the unit we would take some time and listen to "Carnival of the Animal's" and watch a music map.
