Use a straw, a water bottle and a paper tube to make an instrument very much like a saxophone. Explore sound, vibration, and pitch in the Exploratorium Waterbottle Membranophone activity at Howtosmile.org.
Drama Activity (from MAAD About the Arts! by Deidre Russell-Bowie): Have 2 teams, each with a blindfolded student. Allocate directions to particular instruments (e.g. forward- drum, turn right- tambourine). Have both teams try to use instruments to get their person to tag/catch the other. This can help students to practice the language and for students to think about sequences to reach a goal! DIY Bells/Tamborine
