Making the Band!

Our current science unit is on sound and light. We are focusing on sound first. The students' first challenge was to work in a group of four to create their own instruments out of the following materials:
                               --1 sheet of paper        --1/4 cup of rice
                               --2 paper plates           --2 styrofoam cups
                               --3 rubber bands         --4 straws
                               --1 metal hanger         --1 piece of foil
                               --1 plastic container    --1 ruler
                               --2 plastic spoons       --tape

After they created their instruments, each group had to write a 30 second song on sound waves. Check out our work!
