To help prepare for Music Monday, the Coalition for Music Education in partnership with the Canada Space Agency has developed a learning and teaching module that demonstrates the connections between science and music. Built on science lessons developed previously by experts across Canada, direct links will be made to music skills and concepts taught in elementary schools in each province and territory. Science outcomes are based on those in the PanCanadian Science Curriculum (1997), and music educators and classroom teachers will be able to identify music outcomes from their provincial music curriculum. To make the learning integrated and meaningful, music educators may wish to collaborate with science teachers as you plan the activities in this module.
Although the music activities are directly linked to the science lessons, they can be done independently and adapted for a range of grade levels. Most of the science activities are written upper elementary classes, but the music activities can be modified to suit primary as well as secondary music classes. Teachers should consider these as suggestions for learning, teaching and assessment, and should feel free to made adaptations to suit their own particular classes.
