Use these Sortify Discussion Starters to help students reflect on their learning during and after the Sortify: Instruments game, and expand the discussion to how game play relates to real life.

  • What strategies did you use when choosing your bucket labels?
  • How did you decide which bucket to place your tiles in when there was more than one option?
  • How are the instruments in a world region bucket (African, Asian, etc.) alike? Different?
  • Which tiles were the most difficult to sort? Why?
  • Were there any bucket labels that were confusing to you? How did you figure it out?
  • What are some other ways your tiles could have been sorted?
  • If you could create 5 additional tiles to include in the game, what would they be?
  • What other genres of music would work as bucket labels for this set of tiles?
