How Instruments Are Made Videos!

Yesterday was the last day of school! Yippeeeeee!

When school is almost done and it's always nice to find easy, low key and interesting activities to do with the kiddos that are also at least somewhat educational!

"Something I learned from watching the video was..."
"Something I found interesting was..."

Here are the three videos that grade 4-6 students responded to last week.
