Looking for easy ways to connect to other subjects this school year?

Over the next couple of weeks, we will be digging deeper into our August content release, which is packed with easy-to-implement cross-curricular connections to science, history, and more. This release includes:

  • A New Special Project in 4th Grade
  • More than 40 New Classical Song Activities
  • Upgrades to Favorite Student Interactives

If you’re a Quaver program user with access to these resources, you don’t have to do anything to see new content! You’ll find these already active in your QuaverMusic.com teacher account.

1) Science of Sound

For users with access to: 4th Grade Curriculum

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.

2) About the Piece

For users with access to: Curriculum & ClassPlay

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.

3) Student Interactive Upgrades

For users with access to: Curriculum

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.
