This video segment from Between the Lions features an original story about instruments, and everyone wants to know what instrument Alvin plays. Kids dance around and play their instruments as the narrator explains how each of the instruments are played. Then the kids play more and other kids dance to the music. Key vocabulary focuses on instrument names and includes: trumpet, brass instrument, saxophone, wind instrument, xylophone, padded mallet, percussion, violin, string instrument, bow, and triangle. This video segment provides a resource for Vocabulary, and Language and Vocabulary Development.
This media asset comes from the Between the Lions episode: "Violet’s Music & What Instrument Does Alvin Play?"
