From the Music Teacher, Kate Fitzgerald:

I am sending you the most recent submissions of music inventions from West Woods Upper Elementary School in Farmington, CT. The 5th grade students enjoyed doing the project so much last year, that I had two 5th grade groups involved in the project this year!

The students were asked to create an inexpensive instrument from everyday household items and write a brief description about their instrument name, what materials they used to build it and how the sound is produced.

This project is also an extension of the " Science of Sound" and "Instruments of the Orchestra" Unit in General Music and the "Sound and Light" Unit the students do in Science class.
