What do a vegetable, water bottle, straw, and a violin all have in common? They can all make music of course! In this class, we’ll learn all about instruments and how sound is made. We will discover instruments from around the world, as well as learn about recycled and odd instruments (such as a carrot recorder.) Pan pipes, guitar, maracas, and drums are some of the recycled instruments that we will create and play!

1:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. It’s All in Me – Class 1403 (Carolyn Sutton)

In this class we will take an inside look at the human body, and learn about each of the body’s major systems. We will learn about the circulatory and respiratory system and how they work together, build working models of a heart and lung, and make maps of ourselves from a model of a cell to a life size map of our major systems. Find out more about what’s inside you!
