Create mind map assignments following the steps from this section. Learn how to introduce group work to students and then use the following exercises to teach them how to learn collaboratively. You can also create other exercises that you think would fit well with the lessons you teach in class.


Ask groups to use the template below and research two different musical instruments. They can include orchestral instruments or culture-specific instruments of their choice.

Their mind map should contain:

  • A picture of each instrument
  • At least one representative video or audio file with the chosen instruments
  • Short description and usage
  • Milestones in the development of musical instruments

This research will help them choose a musical instrument to learn in case they are interested in music.
