Ding! Boom! Bing! The hallways of the Fuller Meadow 1st graders have sounded a little something like this over the last few weeks. Our new science program has brought us the very noisy, yet very fun, unit of sound. 1st graders began by investigating rubber bands and their ability to make sound. We were fascinated to learn that the thicker the rubber band, the lower the pitch.
After learning about sound, vibrations, pitch, and volume, Klipfel and Kids set out to make their very own instruments. We created everything from shakers to drums and even guitars made out of toilet paper rolls.
Thanks to the talented Mrs. Alvarado, The Banana Splits (our new band name) were ready to jam.
Next stop, Carnegie Hall.
