Deederz by Asha

The name of my project is called Deederz. Deederz is a wind instrument that has a combination of a flute and a recorder.

Deederz is made up out of straws, construction paper, and cardboard. I found the construction paper and the cardboard at home and I got the straws from James.

I made the instrument by cutting out a 6 in.x2 in. piece of cardboard with scissors. Then I covered the cardboard with construction paper. After that I taped the straws (two-by-two) onto the cardboard. Then I decorated it with markers. The one problem I had with the instrument was the pitch of the straws. But I found out that you had to cut out the straws to make it go higher or lower.

You play Deederz by blowing through each of the straws.
