In addition to the labs are stations for making homemade instruments. They include directions and ideas for xylophones, drums, and flutes.
All of the labs are hands-on and first grade friendly. The labs require some materials, but most of them are common classroom objects such as arts and craft supplies and recyclables. The labs can be completed in groups, individually, in pairs, or as a whole group depending on your specific classroom needs. Each lab includes the materials needed, directions, and reflection questions.
