Last year, our 7th and 8th graders had the opportunity to make instruments for music class. We studied how musicians classify world instruments, and each student chose a classification to tackle. 8th grade truly blew me away with their amazing creations! We had a blast jamming together in class, and showed off a few instruments at our family STEAM night event in May.
Here are some of my favorite moments from class:
Students singing “Call Me Maybe” and playing on their rhythm instruments:
Rachel showing off her guitar:
Alex with his truly impressive trombone:
Nicholas with what he dubbed his “Styrophone”
What fun it was for me to see my kids embrace this project!
