4th Grade Rhythm Compositions

Recently, the 4th grade completed a Rhythm composition based on the 3+1 formula, a common pattern found in music.  We began the project by listening to Symphony no. 94 by Haydn, also know as the Surprise Symphony.  The students found that Haydn repeated one rhythm three times,and then followed it by a new rhythm, hence the 3+1 formula.  With a partner the students created their own 3+1 rhythm and then performed it on instruments.  Here are the results:
