John Philip Sousa and the Cup Game– at the same time!

In an interesting combination, 5th graders will be learning about Sousa Marches while also working on their coordination and steady beat skills by learning the “cup game”.


This week, students will be focusing on an introduction to Sousa and learning the cup game. In two weeks, we will do the second half of the lesson by reviewing the cup game and then performing it in a circle with all 27 students in class, with a steady beat, and to the speed of Washington Post March by John Philip Sousa.
