Our 3J Instruments!

Our 3J Instruments!

The 3Js each had a challenge to create an instrument in which the can change the loudness and pitch.  After coming up with possible ideas and thinking about how the volume and frequency could be changed, students made their instruments.  Check out how some of them did!

Measuring Time!
