Soundscapes and using the electronic whiteboard

Andrew and I have been working with the grade 2 students teaching them composition ideas through the use of vocal sounscapes. Basically you draw a shape and find an appropriate vocal sound. You devise a number of these shapes and then place them in order. The students can then conduct the class through the composition. Choosing the order of the sounds and the volume levels is up to the person leading the class.

Today we found a great way to integrate the sounds through the use of the electronic whiteboard. As the video shows you can move the pictures ontop of each other and the children can choose what vocal sound to make. This makes for a much more interesting composition
