A Place to Connect Teachers and Support Children

Children in our room have been learning about diversity through music, games and various activities.  With such a high interest in music, we decided to learn more about musical instruments.  We began by watching a short clip of instruments that are played in various countries.  We stopped the video clip at each instrument and discussed attributes of the instruments.  We then gathered items from our treasure chest  (a box containing items to create two and three dimensional representations), clay, paper and writing utensils and brought that over to the table.  Children choose a medium and then used that medium to represent.  We currently have recreated three instruments and plan on continuing this through out the rest of the week.  Later, a child asked if we could listen to music that used each of the three instruments.
