Today we returned to the project room with a new challenge. The same instruments from the other day were out with a few new items. There were towels, buckets, scarves, cups, and plastic containers. The children were asked to see if they could change the sound of any of the instruments from the other day.
They quickly discovered that using a different mallet could create a big change in the sound. Some of them started to use the towel to cover an instrument to dampen the sound, while others placed the bucket on top to see if they could get an echo.
Today was our last day with the instruments in the project room, but we will continue experimenting with sound next week.
