Harmony on Orff Instruments

With a little preparation ahead of time, even the youngest students can learn about harmony and chord progressions! Check out these first graders making beautiful harmonies on Orff Instruments! NOTE: For this activity, instrument keys should be labeled 1-7 starting on C for bass instruments, E for alto instruments, and G for soprano instruments.  This way chords will sound whenever students play the same number, stated by the teacher.
