The Glove Hooter Band

Students are currently making glovehooters, exotic rooster-like hooters which sound a lot like foghorns! Students had to study parts of an instructional text and had to organise it so it had a logical sequence and then make their very own hooter. Some have actually made two. We have enough variety of pure notes and off-notes to compose something recognisable as well as something whacky. The band will perform at the final assembly of this term. The students decorated cylinders of varying lengths and diameters. They are currently learning the techniques to get the best sounds. It's a fun unit with quite a few variables. Here are a few of them:
