Visualizing Music

I found this video from an Eric Carle story that I hadn't heard of before and thought it would be something fun we could do for a Friday.

I reminded the kids to think about how we talk about visualizing for comprehension in reading. I asked them to close their eyes and listen to a kind of music I would play and then draw/write a few words about what they see in their mind. I played classical music, 80's music, rock and then one from a musical. The only thing I took exception to was the reference as 80's music as "old school" music...excuse me! :) It was a quick little fun activity that I hope gave them a different way to apply visualization.
