This is my favorite unit to teach my students. I take a few weeks to teach the 4 families of the orchestra and the instruments. The teachers will have the students color the page with the characters of Peter and the Wolf and put sticks on them , making them into paper puppets. THEN we watch my favorite animation of "Peter". Children REALLY get into this!
The characters of Peter and the Wolf, finished!
