I modified the project by substituting the egg shakers for musical instruments. We also made tambourines and had a parade.
Children will discuss sounds they hear in the book Polar Bear, Polar Bear What Do You Hear by Eric Carle.
Students will share the different sounds they could hear with their ears and what sounds they might hear in different places such as the zoo, park, or a school.
Students will use their sense of hearing to determine what instrument is being played.
Students will create an instrument that they can use to make loud/soft sounds.
Children will use Kid Pixs to draw and create an instrument they may have heard from the guessing game.
Children are asked what sense they need to use to determine what instrument is being played. Students will name different sounds they hear in the park, zoo, or in school.
To adapt the lesson even more, teachers can create different instruments. Also, instead of using egg shakers, teachers can create a recording of different sounds that the children can listen to and guess what the sounds are.
