Phase 3: Concluding the Project
To culminate the project in the 4 year old classroom, we decided to create a display of the children's participation throughout the project. We displayed pictures of children making instruments, singing, dancing, and moving to various styles of music. The children had also represented their favorite songs with musical notation. A songbook was prepared with a compilation of songs to take home as a keepsake. As an extension to the project, harps were created.
The display of the project, as the culminating event, helps us share with parents and our peers the value of an integrated musical project.
