  • Product Description
  • StandardsNEW

To create sound instruments, students apply understanding of sound energy, pitch and volume. As students complete sound experiments, they use the engineering design cycle to investigate, plan, create, improve, and evaluate their instruments.

This STEAM challenge is included in this sound bundle. Check it out:

(Currently: 14 NGSS Aligned Projects)

All STEM Projects are OPEN ENDED, allowing student flexibility to create and test unique designs. ❤

Grading Rubric:

The grading rubric allows teachers to assess how students drew on their scientific knowledge of sound to explain how their instrument was created. Information should include needed measurements, and how the instrument plays high/low pitched sounds, and loud/soft volume.

Instrument Museum Voting Slips & Awards:

To celebrate students’ musical instrument creations, host an orchestra showcase. Students will walk around and examine/play their fellow musicians’ work. As they look, they will vote to decide upon 3 awards. (When I did this with my 1st and 4th graders, my rule was always you cannot vote for yourself.) After votes are in, awards can be given. A blank template is also included so you can create your own award, if desired. (b/w versions are included.)

1 Leveled Science Passage:

Students read a passage about how volume and pitch are changed on instruments.

• 1.8

• 2.4

• 4.3

• 5.5

2 Venn Diagrams: 2 Variations Each

Students will use their knowledge of high and low pitch, and loud and soft volume to complete a Venn Diagram regarding their own instrument or another classmates.

Differentiated: With and without visual support

NGSS1-PS4-1
Plan and conduct investigations to provide evidence that vibrating materials can make sound and that sound can make materials vibrate. Examples of vibrating materials that make sound could include tuning forks and plucking a stretched string. Examples of how sound can make matter vibrate could include holding a piece of paper near a speaker making sound and holding an object near a vibrating tuning fork.
