Do you want an engaging way to teach your students the anatomy of the guitar? Are you looking for a way to incorporate more hands-on art activities into your music room? If you answered 'yes' then this collection of 5 lessons is for you!
I love including other subjects into music to engage more of my students. For example, I love doing musical math activities with my students, playing movement games, and using art as a way to teach my students music! This collection of lesson plans uses art to teach music and aligns with National Music Standards (specific standards included in each lesson).
With this collection of music lessons, your students will begin by learning the history of the guitar and the basic guitar anatomy through a power point presentation (link included) and a poster/handout (also included). Then, they will build upon their understanding of the function of each part of guitar by creating their own paper guitar that has elements representing the anatomy of a real guitar. Minimal prep is needed by the teacher that executes this unit as all the pieces are explained through the lesson plan (includes pictures!).
