Musical Instruments + 3D Design
Create a class Padlet wall. Have students brainstorm names of musical instruments and/or find pictures of different musical instruments.
2 Direct Instruction
3 Guided Practice
Students play Sortify: Musical Instruments on BrainPOP in small groups and discuss different ways to classify musical instruments.
Individual students register for Tinkercad and complete the step-by-step tutorial lessons in the 'Learn' section of the page. Pair students to help each other with learning and troubleshooting.
4 Independent Practice
Students create their own musical instruments in Tinkercad. Students can design as inidivudals or in pairs/small groups.
Students present their designs to the class. If available, use a 3D printer to print out the design.
Enrichment activity: Design additional musical instruments. Have students blog about the process, including screenshots of the design and/or photographs of the 3D printed object.
