Lesson Plans

Exploring Instruments in Kindergarten:

This lesson allows students to explore a variety of musical instruments. This is a hands-on activity allowing students to discover the differences in sounds made by different instruments. Students will also gain practice in recording their observations in their science notebooks.

Type: Lesson Plan

Recycled Music:

The students will design, create and demonstrate a musical instrument made from recycled materials.

Type: Lesson Plan

Kindergarten Listening Walk:

Students will record what they hear on a nature walk. They will learn that sounds are all around us and that they are made by vibrations.

Type: Lesson Plan

Did You Hear That?:

This lesson focuses on different sound qualities and being able to distinguish the different qualities. This lesson explains how vibrations cause sound to be produced. How sound travels is also explored during this lesson. These concepts are explored while children solve an engineering design challenge through guided inquiry.

Type: Lesson Plan
