These "candy-bar rhythms" are great to use for composing, reviewing rhythm counting, and rhythm dictations.
For this activity, the students had to divide their rhythms into measures in 2/4 time. The rhythm sticks represent barlines and double-barlines. The students can chant the candy names, count the rhythms, and add instruments.
You can find the powerpoint for the rhythms here:
