One activity that I love involves metric transformation. We take a simple song, in this case “How Do You Do?” and sing it initially in 3/4 time. We walk the beat and shake hands on the strong beat. Then we change the song to a 4/4 feel and find a different movement to reflect that feeling. We also learn the song in 2/4. The students are then taught to recognize each meter and interact with each other through the realization of learning.
