Sound unit part 1

We just wrapped up our science unit on sound, but not before making homemade harmonicas.

The kiddos L-O-V-E-D making the instruments and had no idea that I was making them work on oral motor skills, too! 
These harmonicas are very simple to make. Click HERE to see the directions we followed from The directions are very simple and easy to follow. My students didn't need too much help and were able to make noise fairly easily. Students do have to press their lips together while blowing to make the sound. Once we figured that out everyone could do it. 
Stay tuned for part 2 where we make an instrument in with different materials.
Have fun!
