Science + Music = Unique Instruments

January 29, 2013

from Holy Cross music director, Mrs. Cain –

Holy Cross 4th grade music students created some awesome homemade musical instruments this past week, all while incorporating our new Common Core Standards of Learning.

After learning about sound during science class and then classifications of instruments in music class, the students were then set off on a journey to invent a musical instrument using household materials.  

Their instrument had to be decorated and had to create sound or multiple tones.  Then the students were asked to present the instrument to the class.  With names like the Chrisoon 2000, trarp (Mix of a triangle and harp), Cupper Dumper 250, Plucker 3000, Quanjo, and even The One-Man Band, this was a very fun project.

Please enjoy looking at the musical instrument inventions by the wonderful Holy Cross 4th grade class…

Ciencia + música = instrumentos únicos

Director de música de Holy Cross, Sra. Caín-

Los estudiantes de música de 4 º grado de Holy Cross crearon la semana pasada algunos instrumentos musicales caseros impresionantes, al mismo tiempo se incorporaron  normas nuevas al Estándar común de aprendizaje.

Después de aprender acerca del sonido durante la clase de Ciencias y de haber clasificado los instrumentos, los estudiantes  fueron enviados a  inventar un instrumento musical con materiales del hogar.

Sus instrumento debían de estar decorados y crear sonido o tonos múltiples. Luego , se les pidió a los estudiantes presentar el instrumento a la clase. Con nombres como Chrisoon 2000, trarp (mezcla de un triángulo y arpa), Cupper Dumper 250, Plucker 3000, Quanjo e incluso de The One-Man Band, se trato de un proyecto muy divertido.

Disfrute por favor viendo las maravillosas invenciones de instrumentos musicales por los alumnos de 4 º grado de Holy Cross.
