Boomwhackers

Our third, fourth, and fifth grade students just completed Boomwhacker composition projects. Boomwhackers are colorful, pitched plastic tubes, and they're a lot of fun to play! Students were responsible for creating rhythm patterns, selecting the boomwhackers they wanted to use, and putting together a performance of their composition for the class. I was very impressed with the performances! There was a lot of creativity and great teamwork from our students in these projects. After all the groups performed, we watched the performances of our class. Each group reflected on their performance and completed a critique worksheet. I believe it's important for students to learn from their performances and discuss what went well, what they could have improved upon, etc. Overall, our students put a lot of thought and effort into their projects, which was evident in the performances. Well done, students!
