End of Year after concert game


After the final orchestra concert there's a lot to do.  Inventory, music collection, music filing, summer rentals, instrument cleaning, locker clean-out...the list can go on and on.  It's nice to have a fun activity for students to do that can free you up to complete some end-of-year  chores.

This game is inspired by a board game called 'Loaded Answers.'  Here's how to play the orchestra version:

Make double-sided game sheet - one side for answers, the other side with questions.  Here's a LINK to my form.

Have students divide themselves into teams of 5-8 people and sit in a circle.

This game is fun, easy, and students can keep it going by themselves.  Great for end-of-year or for a sub plan!

You can make your own questions or find questions online...there are many sites that lists of questions for kids.  Here's my list:

  1. If you had to play one specific piece of music every day for the rest of your life, what would you play?

  2. What would immediately get you out of a bad mood?

  3. What is an abnormal thing to say to your orchestra teacher?

  4. Who should be locked in an instrument locker?

  5. What would be the most embarrassing mistake to make at a concert?

  6. If you could buy anything in the world, what would you buy?

  7. What musical instrument do you feel should be banned?

  8. What is your favorite orchestra memory?

  9. If you had to eat just one type of food for the rest of your life, what would it be?

  10. If you could do anything right now, what would you do?

  11. What do you look forward to when you wake up?

  12. If your stuffed animals could talk, what would they say?

  13. What bothers you?

  14. What is something you want to do this summer?

  15. If you were a teacher and could teach your students anything, what would you teach them?

  16. What do you daydream about?

  17. If you opened a store, what would you sell?

  18. What is the best thing that ever happened to you?
