Claxton second graders have been working on the Science of Sound, a curriculum created and supported by the Bob Moog Foundation's Dr. Bob's SoundSchool. The 10-week curriculum teaches second graders the physics of sound and gives them a chance to use both acoustic and electronic instruments, including a theremin, and technological tools like oscilloscopes. (Check out the theremin in Mr. Butler's music room!)
The study culminated in a performance at the Orange Peel last Tuesday, and Claxton students rocked it!
They experienced the work of the road crew as they helped Mr. Butler load instruments into his truck.
Ms. Wertheim's and Ms. Morris's classes combined forces to replace popular music lyrics with their own about how sound works.
Mr. Williams' class wrote their own song, with students singing, playing instruments, and dancing.
And Ms. Henderson's class wrote an entire play about traveling through the ear to show how we process sound.
Not only did the kids have a great time learning science, but they made Claxton proud at this district-wide performance.
Thank you to the Bob Moog Foundation for all the work you do enriching our children and making science fun!
