Making musical instruments

Lesson: Science

Class: Mrs Murphy/Mr McAndrew 's Class - 3/4A Year: 2017 - 2018

As part of our learning in Science, we explored sounds by making musical instruments from a range of junk materials.  Although we could design our instruments as we liked, we had to follow some criteria in order for us to explore pitch and volume.  We experimented with using a variety of materials as skins for drums in order to explore how to create high and low sounds and we used elastic bands, thin elastic and wool to investigate how to make sounds by plucking.
