Second Grade Studies Sound
The second graders in Mrs. Stoner's class just finished studying about Sound. The students learned how sound is made through vibrations. They also learned about volume and pitch. To end the unit, they created fantastic instruments! There were drums, violins, and guitars, to name a few. They performed with their instruments and the song "Happy" during our recent Writing and Science Celebration. They had so much fun! The class also wrote a "How-To" make an instrument integrating Writing and Science.
We also went to the Fred Ingold Musical Festival at Marvin Ridge High School. At the festival we got to hear the band and a string ensemble. Instruments of varying volume and pitch were explained and demonstrated. Our music teacher, Mrs. Adcox, planned this event.
