(Native American) Music to My Ears
The students were asked to incorporate at least four different media, Native American symbolism (they were given a hand out full of symbols) and should resemble the instrument in shape/form and concept. They had free reign over a variety of art materials and I loved to see the variety of work the kids came up with. We filled the rain sticks and rattles with rice and did our best to stretch fabric over the homemade drums. Everything came out looking (and sounding) great!
