This unique set explores the physics of musical instruments ¯ how musical sounds are made. After listening to and learning the names of orchestral instruments, sort them by how their sound is made. Elementary students will be stimulated to explore and research even more!
Children can sort under either set of labels the familiar Western orchestra categories (strings, woodwinds, brass, percussion) or ten specific musicological categories/subcategories (chordophones, aerophones, etc).
Cards are symbol-coded to facilitate sorting. Includes 28 instrument cards (3" x 4"), 14 labels, and excellent resource information. Coated cardstock cards.
