To celebrate Earth Day this year our school met up with the neighbouring K-3 school where we played our drums, all made out of recycled materials, together. All 360 students played the heartbeat and some other beats as well. It was a very special experience. A big thank you to Mrs. Driscoll and Mrs. Keiver for making this happen!
What is your favourite beat to play on your drum?
How can you do something to take care of the Earth?
This week we started to make our drums for our upcoming Earth Day celebration. We are making the drums and mallets all from recycled materials! They sound great. We hope you can join us for our drumming circle on Friday, April 21! Stay tuned to see how they turn out!
How are we making our drums? What symbols are you using on your drum and why?
Have you ever made a musical instrument out of recycled materials before? If you have, what was it?
This Friday our school and the other K-3 school in our area set out to meet at a park. Over the past few weeks we have been busy sanding, oiling, and decorating our own walking sticks – they are beautiful! We had a great walk to the park and filmed along the way with our LearnPads.
We also sang a song for Mr. A. that fits in with Earth Day. We sang and did sign language to “Colours of the Wind” while Ms. Trish played on the piano. I hope to upload a video of it soon!
