With your parents permission, you can download this game. Just try the treble clef

game to start with.





Activity 3:

This activity is a creative one. 

For some ideas, here is a YouTube of a man who layers different sounds to make a story about wind and rain.   You could do the same, or a different one.

1. Choose at least 4-5 different sounds- Use some of the ideas from Activity 1 and 2.

Ideas; hitting sounds, shaking sounds, scraping sounds, tuned sounds in glass, tinkly sounds

2.Create a sound story using your sounds.

For example:- You could start off soft.. grow louder... softer... combine some sounds, louder softer..


3. Prep -2 Create a sound story that goes for  30 seconds

    Year 3-6 Create a sound story that lasts for a minimum of 1 minute.

    Or work with your family and share your sounds ! to make a story of at least 1 minute.

Activity 1:

What is a musical scale? ( P-6)

  • Do a bit of research- ask  an adult. Hit the internet. 

  • What does one sound like?

  • Find 8 glasses or glass jars - they need to be identical in size and shape. BE CAREFUL!!!

  • Use water to fill them to create a scale- you'll need something to tap them with, gently! Try wood.  The try metal- a spoon would do.

  • Take a picture and send it to your home room teacher on Seesaw- I can see them there!
