Instrumental Music, Church Lane Elementary
In my 4th grade Exploratory Music class, students are working at various music centers to explore different properties of sound. Using items such as tuning forks, ping pong balls, boomwhackers, and balloons, students conduct science experiments at each station in order to learn about how vibration creates sound and how sound travels through the air.
The centers were a huge success, and the students now have a foundation on which to understand the rest of the instruments they will be learning about this year in Exploratory Music. I am hoping to include more centers throughout the school year to continue this high level of student engagement in my classroom.
