Our unit on the Five Senses is wrapping up, but not before we squeeze in some last minute senses learning! Last week, students were asked to create a musical instrument using any items they had at home. Students were asked to “think like an inventor, be a problem solver, use your imagination, and have fun!” They were given a planning sheet where materials and ideas were recorded and a blueprint was sketched.
Once students brought their instruments to school, they were invited to share the process they used to invent!
Students also brought their instruments to music class, where they played a listening game.
Students even had an opportunity to play their musical instruments!
I love how this project integrates learning at home to school to music class!
