First Grade Week 1 -- the science of sound

On Wednesday and Thursday music classes began for all first graders.  The emphasis for first grade will be on how instruments work.  We began this week with the science of sound.  The students conducted several experiments to observe the effects of waves and vibrations and how the force of sound could be used to blow out a candle and flip over a coin.  We ended with a comb kazoo jam on "Round the Oak Tree."

Homework -- everybody compete the week one worksheet.  Can you come up with a name for the mystery instrument?
