Students have begun to present their homemade musical instruments. I absolutely love this project and am excited each day to watch them enthusiastically and proudly present their creation. Here are videos of them playing songs or tunes on them during their presentations. I am downloading their pics and videos to a file that I am sharing with them individually through Google Docs. This will allow you to access the pics at home as well.
LM & SM, OB, MA & AA and VF-S, MD & ZR have compiled their music creations and voice recordings to create their service announcements. Some digital tools they used for this project were Voice Recorder Pro, Launchpad music creator app, and Audacity software. Please have a listen.
