Instrument Sort

The Grade 1 classes have been accompanying songs with the non-pitched instruments, creating simple rhythmic textures and performing a steady beat.  We also identified, described and classified non-pitched percussion sounds into 3 groups - metals, woods and skins/membranes.  Students showed excellent listening and control as we practiced taking turns and waiting to play at the right times in the music.  This takes concentration.

Can you sort these instruments?
