Learning About Tchaikovsky and Swan Lake


Last week we studied Russia, so it was only natural to do a little unit-study on Tchaikovsky for our Music lesson.  We read the book, Tchaikovsky Discovers America by Esther Kalman (the picture above is from the back cover)...




Since we already covered The Nutcracker, I decided to focus on Swan Lake.  I read aloud a picture book telling the story, which L (age 6.5) summarized  (love that swan!).


Finally, we watched (and danced along to) an entire production of Swan Lake by the Kirov Ballet on YouTube:




For more learning and fun be sure to check out the LaLaLogic Critical Thinking Curriculum for Preschoolers which I developed.
