Vibrations and Waves
Welcome: Delicious music theme song
Getting to know you: Pick four more children to share something about themselves and play a song on the bells.
Activity: Learn about what makes sound. Sound is vibrations that go to my ear and sends a message to my brain making sounds that I can hear.
Demonstrations: (classrooms may be stocked with the first two items)
1. Vibrations: pluck an elastic around a bread pan to show vibrations
2. Vibrations create airwaves: hit one pan next to another pan that has cupcake sprinkles on top and watch the sprinkles move.
3. Feel vibrations: comb and wax paper activity
a. give everyone a plastic comb (I found packs at the dollar store)
b. cover the comb with a small square piece of wax paper
c. blow into the wax paper to feel the vibrations
d. blow to the tune of “adios amigos” together
Video: Evelyn Glennie – deaf percussionist who plays by feeling the vibrations through her fingers and body (7:25 minutes found on freedeliciousmusic.org)
Song: The Explorers
Goodbye Song: Sing Adios Amigos
