Musical Objective: To have students experience listening to a great classical work and make their own musical story
Process & Personalization: (teaching sequence & student participation)

Vivaldi and the Invisible Orchestra by Costanza Lives of the Musicians by Hewitt The recording of Vivaldi's Four Seasons popsicle sticks stick puppets figure pictures to color

Have students gather around and read them the story of Vivaldi and the Invisible Orchestra (have the music in the background to make the story and so that they can associate the composer with the piece) Then have them listen to parts of each piece of the work and have them draw which season they think the music represents (Have some students share their thoughts and why they choose to draw what they drew) Tell the students that it is now Spring, but which season comes before spring. With puppets show your story about winter and have them watch and then play spring and have them think about a spring story that they can show With multiple copies of the stick puppets have groups of students create their own version of a spring story and have them act it out for the class with the music in the background, students can also color pictures to enhance their stories (have the music playing in the background as they are creating their stories) (assessment: while the students are performing their stories see if they have contrasting parts that go with the music)
