What a day! Joan was playing a call for cuckoos, but all the kids wanted to see an elephant, not a little bird.
So…we had to build a call for elephants using some items we found in the bin.
In fact, the bin was a perfect sound box, and we used it to have a wind instrument like the tuba. (Yes, it sounds like an elephant!)
Then we found a piece of string, and we built a string instrument using the same bin! The double bass needs a sound box, as well…
And what about the percussion instruments? Yes! They need a sound box too.
We learnt how to amplify the sound of our lips, a string or a beat just using a sound box, and we listened to the wind, string and percussion musical giants: Tuba, double bass and bass drum.
