Description

Classroom Ideas

Children could explore sounds that they can produce using their voices. Can they find sounds that could represent different percussion instruments? In groups, they could try beat boxing but with each individual concentrating on one sound. As they become more confident they can attempt to put more sounds together to become a drum kit.
