Junior Infants had wonderful time this year at our First Science Fair.
Ms. Keane’s class investigated “All sorts of Sound” for the fair. We explored lots of sounds in the environment and learned all about the families in an Orchestra; String, Woodwind, Percussion and Brass.
We made string instruments using a small shoe box, wrapping paper and elastic bands.
We made percussion instruments (shakers & drums) using a Pringles tin, pasta & rice. We then painted them and used some nice stickers to decorate. We also made drums using an old sweet tin, parchment to cover the top & elastic bands to hold the parchment in place.
