Majoring on the Minor

Cool days, dark nights, leaves in the air--what a perfect time of year to learn about minor tonality!  In 2nd grade we sang the song "Pass the Pumpkin."  This song has great minor sounds in it.  We talked about minor sound being "sad, eerie, and spooky."  Major sounds are "happy, bright, and joyful."  After learning the song, we played the instrument parts and the passing game.  Here is a picture and a video of one class performing the whole thing.
