Making Maracas

This Art, Math and Music project provides a great opportunity for students to be imaginative with creating their own musical instrument. Students can measure and add different amounts of rice and or beans to create the sound that they would like from their maraca.  Then students will decorate the maraca with vibrant colors of duck tape. The variety of sounds and colors that the students create is awesome!
