5th Grade Soundscape

This fall, over the course of three weeks, the fifth graders composed a soundtrack for an old 1929 cartoon in music class.  They watched it muted, decided on the places it needed sound and brainstormed ideas to create the sound......everything from flapping bubble wrap and dropping books to vocal sound effects and all kinds of pitched and unpitched percussion.  We recorded and filmed it and our librarian, Robin Nygren embedded it into the original film.
