Learn all about the orchestra with this interactive using baseball metaphors. Meet the players by choosing an era from baroque through modern times. Return to Home Plate to navigate throughout activities as you learn about instruments, parts of a composition, and technology. Play Ball assesses your knowledge upon completing activities to find out if you have hit it out of the park!

tag(s): music theory (44), musical instruments (50)

In the Classroom

Share this interactive on a projector or interactive whiteboard as you learn about orchestras together. Create a link on classroom computers for students to explore on their own. Share with your school's music teacher as an interesting activity for music class. This site would be excellent for use before a field trip or a school assembly featuring an orchestra! Have students create an annotated image of musical instruments including text boxes and related links using a tool such as Thinglink, reviewed here. Thniglink can be used for a variety of assignments in any classroom that is integrating technology as a modification.
