In this math activity, learners use a variety of sensory modalities to gain experiences with identifying, describing and creating repeating patterns.
In this game, learners create flash cards with an image on one side (of an animal, for example) and the sound that animal makes on the other.
In this activity, learners create a traditional Mexican noisemaker (a matraca) using cardboard, craft sticks, and a wooden dowel.
In this activity, learners explore how musical instruments are engineered.
In this is activity about sound and vibration, learners create their own 'flutes' with drinking straws, then investigate how changing the length of the straw affects the sounds that are produced.
Make a rattle-like musical instrument! Shake it, hit it, spin it any way you want to!
Oboes's unique sound originates from the two small reeds a musician blows into. Make your own double reed instrument out of straw!
Audio Boggle is an activity that lets you listen to a track (that you make yourself) and see what you can hear!
In this activity, learners will explore the ways natural materials can produce sounds. Appropriate for any age, learners can make individual music or create a symphony with others.
In this activity, learners explore sound by constructing an instrument toy that buzzes when you swing it.
Learners make bell bracelets, place them on their wrists or ankles, and then dance to the rhythms and sounds the bells make. Many cultures use ankle or wrist bells to make music during dancing.
In this activity, learners investigate sound and vibration by making a "bee hummer"--a toy that sounds like a swarm of buzzing bees when you spin it around.
What's a Pickle-Oh? Two pieces of pickle on a stick are connected to a Pico Cricket (micro controller). When you slide the pickles apart the note changes.
In this activity, learners explore sound by constructing their very own instruments using PVC pipes, soda bottles, and a straw.
In this activity, learners explore sound by constructing their very own banjo out of a coffee can. Learners experiment with the canjo to change the instrument's pitch and timbre.
In this activity, learners construct a playable kazoo from inexpensive materials. They will experience how vibration creates sound waves and music.
In this activity, learners explore sound by constructing an instrument using some metal pipes, rubber bands, and a baseboard.
In this quick activity (page 1 of the PDF under SciGirls Activity: Music and Sound), learners will construct an oboe-like instrument from a plastic drinking straw by cutting the end to split it into t
Listen to the beat of gravity. By taking two strings with weights tied to them at different, yet uniform intervals, you can hear the uniformity (and rhythm) of gravity's accelerating pull.
