Make your own African Djembe
This primary resource gives children an opportunity to get artistically and musically creative by crafting and decorating a Djembe drum. They will also have an opportunity to think about music, art and design that is influenced by African culture. Children will be challenged to follow instructions to make an African drum, and adapt those instructions for their own creativity using the National Geographic Kids’ Art resource sheet.
Chrome Music Lab
The Chrome Music Lab website makes learning music accessible through fun, hands-on experiments. Many teachers have been using Chrome Music Lab as a tool in their classrooms to explore music and its connections to science, maths, art and more, as well as combining it with dance and live instruments. Here’s a collection of some its uses on Twitter.( https://twitter.com/i/events/826075807915192320)
