The Sound Shaker
by Josh, 4th grade Trinity School, Columbus, Ohio
 

How I made my sound shaker: I took a cardboard tube and I put nails in the tube. I then sealed one end of the tube. I then put half a bag of rice and a baggie of un-popped popcorn. I sealed the other end of the tube. I covered the tube with a wood grain contact paper. When you turn the tube over it sounds like rain falling. This instrument belongs to the percussion family.
