A CD To Enjoy:
“Celtic Garden” by David Arkenstone and “Once Upon a Dream” by Phillip Keveren
available at the Shop at Bok

Family Activity:
1. Listen together as a family to a style of music you haven’t heard before by exploring music from other cultures.

2. Go on a walk together and talk about the sounds you hear. See if you can find cicadas, crickets, Florida Frogs, and a hawk, all by the sounds they make!

3. Fill 5 empty bottles with differing amounts of water to hear the different pitches they make as you blow onto the tops of them. 

Family Discussion:
Have a family discussion about the things you learned.
Ask questions about what sounds make you feel calm? What sounds make you feel happy? What sounds make you feel scared? What sounds make you feel curious? Do natural sounds make you feel differently than human-made sounds?
