Happy Birthday Mozart

Arts Alive has put together a resource packet for teachers to use when exploring the life and music of Mozart.
Bright Hub Education has a Kindergarten lesson plan for introducing students to Wolfgang Mozart.  The lesson objective states:
The objective of this Mozart lesson plan for kindergarten is to provide students with an introduction to this classical composer through discussion and hands-on activities. At the end of this lesson, children will have an understanding of what classical music is and know who Mozart (among other composers) was.
Making Music Fun has a home school lesson plan to be used in teaching students about Mozart. You will find a printable word search and multiplication practice sheet at the link.
Make a special treat in honor of his birthday - a Mozart cake.

The Music Kit has posted a list of children's books about Mozart.

Older students might like to try Mozart's Musical Dice Game for composing a minuet.

Share a familiar song with your children.  They may be surprised to learn that Mozart was the composer.
