• Over the past few lessons, we have been learning about the different families of instruments.  Today, we will learn about the last family called the "Percussion" family.  In order to be a member of this family, you have to play the instrument either by hitting, striking, or scraping.  This is by far the largest family of instruments.  Go to the link about percussion instruments and view the instruments that are listed.  I need you to learn how to identify these instruments by looking at their picture.  You also can listen to the sound clips of these instruments on the website so you know how they sound.  Percussion Instruments  Please leave a comment on the Grade 5 Padlet Response Page and tell me 2 new facts you learned about these instruments.  Make sure you leave your first and last name so I have a record of who is responding to me.  Grade 5 Padlet Response
