After visiting the resources above, design a collaborative project with another classroom. Post the following about the project: Content objective: Students will learn from other students one of the symphonic works that they will hear "live" at The Houston Symphony Field trip I plan to collaborate with a music teacher in the district using SKYPE about 2 months before the planned Houston Symphony Field trip. After the students have learned about one of they symphony pieces that we will hear on the field trip, they will present their knowledge to other 5th graders in the district. I plan to implement this with the 5th grade classes using the 3 new Macbooks and Skype. I have collaborated with other music teachers for several years in preparing the music for the field trip, but this would be the students sharing what they learned with another school. I will present this idea in our August inservice.
