PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Are you a classroom teacher looking for ways to teach about the science of sound, or a music teacher hoping to integrate and collaborate? I created this comprehensive set with my friend and colleague Matthew Parker. The set includes nine lessons about the science of sound, a summative assessment, a suggested sequence and list of standards (including an editable document) , "I can" statements, and directions. Most of the lessons can be taught to Kindergarten-fifth grade, so simply choose the lessons, print, and teach! The lessons include:

Sounds around us (recommended for K-1): Includes lesson and “listening walk” worksheet
Sound exploration (recommended for K-2): Includes lesson, cards for centers, Percussion family book, and worksheets
Vibration lesson (three lessons available, recommended for grades K-1, 2-3, and 4-5): Includes lessons and worksheets
How sound travels (recommended for 3-5): Includes lesson, worksheet, and paper cup experiment worksheet
Size and pitch (recommended for 3-5): Includes lesson, worksheet, and sorting cards
Volume (two lessons available, recommended for grades K-2 and 3-5): Includes lessons, worksheet, sound wave cards, loud and quiet songs ("Closet Key" and "Lucy Locket," both notated and as mp3's), and loud and quiet pictures
Sound wave behavior (recommended for grades 4-5): Includes lesson and worksheet
Instrument creation (two lessons available, recommended for grades K-2 and 3-5): Includes lessons
Instrument family (recommended for grades 4-5): Includes lesson, slideshows for each instrument family, and worksheet

Each lesson uses the model of Watch/ Read/ Do/ Reflect. Many contain links to YouTube vidoes, suggested readings, suggested experiments and activities, etc.

Purchase of this set allows you to share it with one other teacher at your school, for ease of collaboration. If you are a grade-level teacher, you might share it with a team member or your music teacher; if you are a music teacher, you might share it with a classroom teacher.

The set contains these four slideshows already available in my store:
Brass Family slideshow
Woodwind Family slideshow
Percussion Family slideshow
Strings Family slideshow

If you already own these slideshows, either individually or with my Instruments of the Orchestra mega-set, but still want to purchase this set, I will give you a credit for $5 to my store if you email me your username to aileen.miracle@yahoo.com.
