Multi Tasking

By Ingrid and Sierra



Our instrument's name is Multi Tasking. We got the idea because Ingrid went to a science museum in Chicago, and they had an instrument like it. It belongs to the percussion family because we bang objects together.

Ingrid's grandpa helped us make a wood rectangle, and drill holes on the top. Then we took the wire and put it through the holes. Next, we attached different items like jar lids, the top of a spoon, a block of wood, a door hinge, 2 seashells, and 2 measuring cups. When you pull the wire on top, the 2 objects come together and make a sound. We painted it and put a gloss over it. That's how we made our instrument.
