Music Meets Fitness

Mr. Reid leads students in a musical fitness routine.

Mr. Reid’s music classes participated in a Music & Fitness day this week out on the soccer field. Students participated in a 20-30 minute dance style workout which taught several important musical concepts. Students explored with keeping a steady pulse while listening and moving to music and demonstrated their knowledge of musical form by identifying patterns in the songs they heard as shown in the motions they made.

 
In keeping with Union’s Relay For Life theme of “Celebrating More Birthdays” students also learned a new way to keep their bodies healthy to promote healthy living and an active lifestyle. Students also participated with Relay for Life spirit week by wearing their pajamas! Students had fantastic experience moving and analyzing music at the same time, integrating two important subjects.

 (Also, you may notice that students have on their pajamas for Relay for Life Spirit Week!)
