• Today we will be starting a unit on instruments.  All of the instruments in the world are categorized into 4 different families depending on different characteristics.  Today, we will examine the first family which is the family of "Strings." In order to be a member of this family, the sound of the instrument is created by the vibration (movement back and forth) of the strings.  Please follow the link below and learn about some of these instruments.  Make sure you listen to the sound clip so you can begin to identify some of these instruments not only by their picture but also by their sound.  Stringed Instruments  Then, make sure you leave a comment on my Padlet page so I know which instrument you liked the best.   Grade 4 Padlet Response
