2nd Graders Make Music
Second graders in Mrs. Watts’ class have been exploring sound. They have learned about volume, pitch, vibrations and instruments that make sound. Mrs. Watts challenged the students to design their own instrument using everyday objects. They created drums, guitars and chimes, to name a few. Each student presented their instruments to the class by describing how they made it and the way it makes sound. Next week the students will take their instruments to music class and play them for their teacher! A field trip to The Fred Ingold Music Festival is planned as a culminating event for this unit.
