Product Description
This STEAM or STEM mini-unit integrates science, music, oral language, and writing standards. Sound concepts focus on pitch and volume. In 7 sessions with complete lesson plans, students will analyze pitch and volume as properties of sound, use the engineering and design process to create their own instruments from recycled materials, use their instruments to write and perform a short musical composition, present their work to the class, and write about their experience during this design challenge. A full rubric is included to assess skills in science, oral language, writing, and engineering/design.

A full, free preview is available above to help you decide if this activity will be a good fit for your classroom.
