Percussion Family Flashcards

To reinforce your lesson on the percussion family, print these simple flashcards. Students can use them in the traditional way, or try incorporating one of these ideas:

  1. Print two sets and challenge students to find their other half.
  2. Have students only use sound to describe the percussion instrument on their card.
  3. Have students put the cards in order of their favorite percussion instrument sound.
