Cross-Curricular Special Project Added to 4th Grade: Science of Sound
Previously only available to users of our middle school curriculum, teachers will now find Quaver’s Science of Sound Project in their 4th Grade Curriculum under Special Projects. Over a course of six lessons, this project supports STEAM learning by having students investigate sound waves, reverberation, and digital effects. At the end of the project, students will host a Science of Sound exhibition – demonstrating what they have learned with our Creative QSynth.
40 New Classical “About the Piece” Activities
Enhance your students’ exploration of Classical pieces and composers with more than 40 new About the Piece activities in ClassPlay! In each About the Piece, students listen to the piece while discovering where the composer is from, learn an interesting fact about the composer and the piece, and read an interesting quote by the composer.
11 Optimized Student Interactives
Student Interactive favorites like Recorder Fingering Chart, Tic-Qac-Toe, Rhythm Selectah and more now have a new, sleek look! Find these activities in your Student Interactives menu to see what’s new.
