Your task for this week
Design your own musical instrument by upcycling things at home.
Challenge: Can you play high and lowpitch
sounds on your instrument? How did you do it?
Can you take a photo of your instrument and email it to your teacher?
Explain how you made a highpitch
sound and how you made a lowpitch
Below, you will find examples of how you could make musical instruments by upcycling things
