 For hearing impaired students, have them do another activity such as coloring in some different pictures of marching bands, holidays, balerinas, and children sleeping. For vison impaired students, have them take the quiz at another time, preferable during a reading time so that the teacher can administer the quiz and have the student respond orally instead of writting down the answers.
Checking For Understanding:
 Glance over the quizzes and make sure that the students have a solid grasp on the different types of music.
 Play the each music piece again and ask the students to yell out what type of music it is.
