Science play/ music & movements, an excerpt from "I Will Play With You"

Loud sound, soft sound, high pitch, low pitch or a sound in between?  Knowing that objects make different sounds because of their size, density and intensity of collisions, the children experimented with sounds produced by objects like pebbles, sand, rice, marbles, flour, paper clips and different varieties of bean seeds.  Each child put the objects of their choice into a small plastic bottle and sealed it shut.  After decorating the shakers, the children sang and danced to their hearts' delight!  Of course, I sang and danced with them.  It was a fun play to explore sounds as well as promote the children's fine motor and social skills.
