In honor of Earth Day and, well, you are all so creative and probably have a little extra time on your hands, lets ...

Then think about the following questions:
1- What is the name of your instrument?
2- What family or families does your instrument belong to?
Strings, Percussion, Woodwind, or Brass
3- How is your instrument played?
4- What range does your instrument play?
Remember, if it’s small, thin, or short, the pitch is higher.
If it’s large, thick, or long, the pitch is lower.
5- What materials did you use?
6- Does it work?
When you finish your instrument, tell everyone about it on the blog or Google Classroom, share when I stop into your online class meetings, or ALL OF THESE!
I can’t wait to see what you will come up with!
