All I did was take those cute little animal paper plates, add the vocabulary words, and then 3m tape the whole shebang to my wall. You could do it in little groups so that not all the faces are so close together, but I had this bigger space and thought that triangle shape would show the progression from small to large groups.
The only thing that I added or tweaked in this idea would be the addition to the “Quarter Quartet.” I replaced the faces on those plates with an enlarged photograph of a quarter to help link the idea of “Quartet” and the “Quarter.” Hopefully this transfer of information and mnemonic helper will get kids to remember that a quartet has four parts!
Huge thanks to Melissa! This is such a cool idea and makes remembering/understanding so easy!
