String Vibration Study

A classroom set of ukuleles were purchased for fifth grade students at Highland Elementary to study the science of sound (or acoustics) during music class. After learning how to play these unique instruments, they study vibrations and sound frequencies by using different apps. This is a new and exciting way to apply scientific questioning and critical skills to the universal language of music. And, in a District where more than 30 different languages are spoken, it’s a great opportunity to make learning accessible for all students.
