Making a String Instrument

Procedure Writing Assignment

I chose to make a string instrument because I knew it would make a soft sound and be easy to play. To make my instrument you’ll need: a small plastic container, a ruler, and five elastic bands such as two fat ones and three thin ones.

To make this instrument, first take your plastic container and pull the elastic bands over the container so they are far enough apart to pluck (about 2 cm). Next, get your ruler out and lift the elastic bands at the bottom of the plastic container and slide the ruler under the bands.

Finally, you can play your string instrument. Enjoy!!!
