Issue 41: Olympic Torch – Music and Movement Lesson Plan

Once again, I have been busily googling away to see what is out there in the way of Olympic-themed lessons. Searching on “Olympic Torch Music” brought up a number of YouTube videos of opening and closing ceremonies, but also this Music and Movement lesson plan for creating a dance around the lighting of the Olympic Torch.

I don’t think that I¬†would have time to do the whole dance within a music lesson, but it would be perfectly feasible to take just one element; the lighting of the flame, the torch relay, the lighting of the cauldron.

The ideas and warmup activities could easily be used with different music for other topics.
