In this Unit, students will explore the relationship between sound and vibration as they create several hand-made musical instruments.
The “Science Kids” series of packets is intended to help teachers implement developmentally appropriate, hands-on science activities for children in Preschool, Kindergarten and the early grades. The activities in these packets are based on the scientific method and encourage inquiry-based learning.
As they learn about vibrations and sound, the students will explore the following hands-on topics:
★ "Balloon Drums"
★ "Seeing Sound Vibrations"
★ "Cardboard Kazoos"
★ "Spoon Sounds"
★ "Rubber Band Guitars"
★ "Buzzing Balloons"
The two-week unit will conclude with the students creating their own unique instruments.
This packet also includes pocket chart word cards for many common percussion instruments.
