Demonstrate how the musical notes move throughout the hymn Come, Follow Me with this Bar Graph printable! This will speak to those with a logical learning style as they try to decipher the bar graph while they listen and sing along to the melody.
Come Follow Me
Bar Graph Lessons Plan
The logical learners in your Primary room will be completely engaged as you introduce the Come, Follow Me bar graph that represents the notes of the song.
You can fold under the bottom line with the words, or leave them visible – it’s completely up to you. I like to start by asking the kids what they notice about the chart.
They’ll give a lot of really great answers, that might surprise you! But if for some reason you hear crickets instead, you can start the conversation by asking questions like:
- Are all the bars the same height?
- Why are some higher than others?
- Why might some of the bars be a different color?
- Do you see any patterns?
The pattern has a higher bar, for higher notes, and lower bars, for lower notes, following each individual note. The yellow bars point all the lyrics that talk about the Savior. Talk about any repeats, patterns, or correlations the kids notice!
We’ll sing through the song a few times as we are watching how the bar graph and patterns align and talk about the graph between each.
As an extension activity, you can tell the kids to move their hands, or their mouths, like the bar graph shows. A wide open mouth for tall notes, for example, and a more close mouth for lower notes.
