Third Grade Didgeridoos

Third grade's Australian study began this year with the making of a didgeridoo.

We read the book, Do You Do A Didgeridoo? by Nick Page. 

Once we had read the book, we learned about Australian didgeridoos.

The students started out by working on 6 different patterns in their sketchbooks. I had a variety of Zentangle pages handy for them and they were also encouraged to come up with their own ideas.

Once their 6 patterns were completed, each student received a piece of butcher paper. They divided the paper into 6 sections and recreated their patterns with a black marker.

When the patterns were done, they taped paper towel and toilet paper rolls together to make the didgeridoo. The butcher paper was wrapped around the rolls and voila!
