Today we made musical instruments from recyclables. Students weren't given much direction; they just went for it! Before they began, they were shown some examples on this Presentation and could reference this series of tutorials as well. Most students did not look at the tutorials at all. It was a loud, messy, and all around great experience to see them create rain sticks, box guitars, cocoa can drums, straw flutes, and bottle-made xylophones to name a few. Next meeting, the students will collaborate to create a piece of music using their self-created instruments! See all the pictures from our experience here.
