SOUND ENERGY DESIGN CHALLENGE
Teachers and students work collaboratively to identify an environmental challenge regarding the use of cardboard and plastic. The group will then collaborate on a solution by suggesting ways to make an instrument from plastic bottles and/or cardboard tubes. From there the teacher will narrow down the choices to the type and number suited to the group's capabilities. In this case the focus will be on reusing small plastic bottles, and cardboard tubes to make maracas/shakers.
