This Engineered Music lesson plan also includes:
Sound engineers investigate the structural design of a musical instrument, the recorder. They work in collaborative groups to choose an instrument to build out of everyday craft materials. It must be able to repeat a three-note sequence at least three times. Though the publisher designated this lesson as appropriate through high school, it may be best used with your elementary engineers or during a unit on sound waves when learning about pitch.
- Addresses Common Core State Standards and Next Generation Science Standards
- Teamwork, critical thinking, and problem solving skills are practiced
- Children will enjoy engineering a music-making device
