Science & Music
Open space to make a circle
We began by learning the body percussion instruments and discussing the qualities of sound each produced. We tried to make high and low pitches as well as loud and quiet sounds. We explored those sounds through a game called “Let’s All Play Our Body Parts”. “Let’s all play our body parts. A rhythm coming from our hearts. From our head down to our toes, show me how your rhythm goes!”
We broke the class into house groups and let each group work together to create a group rhythm. We presented them and then discussed the qualities of each.
