Making a sound story
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.
4. Record or video your creation onto Seesaw

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!
