Music: “Found Sounds” Music can be found anywhere, even at home! Look for items in your home that you can make instruments out of such as:
Pots with spoons (drum)
Pot Lids (cymbals)
Full or empty drink bottles (blow over the bottle to make a pitch)
Challenge yourself to play different rhythms with these “instruments”
Remember to clap or pat your rhythm syllables!
