You Can't Play a Symphony Alone is part of TeachersFirst Help! I Lost My Library/Media Specialist series reviewed here and shares book suggestions and activities that teach students about the orchestra's instruments. The article begins with background knowledge sharing information about each of the orchestra's different sections. The shared activities include book suggestions, online resources, and suggested lessons to extend student understanding of the instruments and music of orchestras. A final extension activity suggestion shares a creative proposal for students to reimagine a new musical story following the reading of Peter and the Wolf. Content in this article includes correlations to ISTE and AASL standards.

In the Classroom

Take advantage of this article's book suggestions and activities to teach students about the orchestra's instruments using literature connections. Include these activities as part of larger units of study about music, find more ideas at Music Speaks, Music Appreciation in Literature, reviewed here. As students explore and create music through different methods, use a video recording resource such as Adobe Express Video Maker, reviewed here to record and share their creations.
