Our Elastic Guitars
We have been learning about Sound in science. The children used elastic bands and cereal boxes to create their own ‘elastic guitars’. All of the children designed and decorated their guitars before using their scientific knowledge to think about how they could create different sounds. The children enjoyed thinking about the thickness and length of elastic bands they chose and how this would effect the pitch of the sound created. The children also compared their finished guitars and discussed if they made different or similar sounds to their partner and how the size of the hole they cut out effected the pitch of the sound created. Elm class enjoyed sharing their excellent elastic guitars in showing assembly.
