Through music and technology, students developed an in-depth understanding of the science of sound. Students learned that vibrating objects produce sound and that sound can be described in terms of pitch, which may be higher or lower. Students also learned how the human body produces and hears sound. Through a TAPAS grant from the Asheville City Schools Foundation, students had the opportunity to synthesize new learning and relate what they learned about sound to their everyday experiences in the natural world. The second graders worked with local puppeteer, Lisa Sturz, to create a shadow puppet show about soundscapes. In order to better understand the creative process, students developed a script, designed and created a puppet, recorded a soundtrack, and learned the basics of puppet manipulation. They worked with our Music Specialist, Jennifer Fowler, to create the soundtrack that accompanied their narration. Finally, students were able to perform their puppet show for the school community during Experience Dickson night and the Asheville Ciry Schools community during the Sound School Showcase at The Orange Peel. This work promoted collaboration and highlighted an integrated approach to learning, which is central to our magnet theme of experiential education.
