Song Writing

This activity invited children to explore sounds they can make by tapping on jars of water. They noticed that the sound was different depending on the amount of water that was in the jar.

We supplied paper and a marker and had the children draw a line across their paper and then circles across the length of the line.

They "wrote" their own song by painting the circles different colors.

Some chose to paint a pattern of colors while others painted the colors more randomly.

When they were finished everyone got a chance to name and play their very own song.
