Unusual Instruments Lesson Plan #MusicMonday

The amazing educators at Midnight Music have served up a lesson plan about unusual instruments — including a carrot slide whistle from the one and only Andrew Huang. via MidnightMusic

From the lesson plan:

There are some truly amazing videos of crazy, weird, unusual and wacky instruments on Youtube that are perfect for showing students in class.

This lesson is adaptable – there are a set of questions for students to answer (individually or as a group) and you can use any instrument video of your choosing.

I’ve given a few examples below (and in the downloadable lesson plan).

This could work as a quick mini-lesson, or fill an entire regular lesson.  It can also work as a standalone activity or fit into a broader unit of work on a specific topic.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
