This game is a little more of a fun one for very beginner students who are just learning the difference between quarter, half, and whole notes.

It is set up like a shooting gallery, only the objective is to click on the half notes as they move around the screen, without hitting quarter notes or whole notes. There is a timer, and at the end it will tell you your score.

You have to download the PowerPoint File and click enable to accept macros.
