Olympic Fanfare

The Olympics are on the horizon, and I plan to celebrate during music class! If you have access to older Share the Music books, there is a listening map in the second grade book for "Olympic Fanfare" that I have used with my classes. Here is a quick rundown of a quick activity to commemorate this wonderful event, even if you don't have access to the listening map.

1. Brainstorm and list Olympic events. Here is a complete list: Summer Olympic Sports

2. Listen to "Olympic Fanfare" and follow the listening map, if available. Note the different sections. Have students give a signal to indicate when they think the sections change. 

3. Discuss the form (ABCBA) and the tempo of the different sections.

4. Listen and move to the music:

  • A: March in place, as if participating in Opening Ceremony
  • B: Jog in place to the beat (Students can pretend to carry the torch)
  • C: Act out a sport in slow motion (Teacher can call out sports, or students can pick their own. They can change sports during this section, since it is long enough.)
  • B: Jog in place again
  • A: March again
5. You can add a game by playing the slow section and allowing different students to act out a sporting event in slow motion for the class to identify.

This would also be a great time to review the national anthem and discuss how each country's anthem is played when they win the gold. 

(UPDATE: I have created a PowerPoint file with a listening map and clipart of Olympic athletes for movement inspiration. It is a FREE download in my TpT store using the link below.)




Try this activity with your students. I love it, and I hope you will, too. My only complaint is that I have to wait so long before I can use it again!

  2. Hi. I adapted you idea and would love to share it. Added words to the a part. Kids marched, sang and waved flags. Then they jogged in slow motion while passing glow sticks. Someone played the Olympic torch and kids passed glow sticks to that person who posed with them at the end.
