Thirteen Sounds by Kelsea and Ashley

The name of our instrument is the Thirteen Sounds. We had the idea of the maraca. We wondered what we could use inside to make the noise. We used dried beans. For other sounds, we just experimented with water, cans, and bottles. We covered the cans and bottles with paper. We colored and stamped designs on them.

All the cans and bottles have different amounts of water in them. We used materials that were going to be recycled. We had trouble thinking of what we wanted to make and we solved it by experimenting.

To play our instrument, you hit the top of the bottle lids, and hit the pop can tabs to make the different sounds. We liked experimenting with the different objects and learned that you can make a lot of different sounds.
