Glass Bottle Xylophone

Our students enjoyed a presentation a few weeks ago from a musician so much that they were creating music everywhere in the class - we noticed they were hitting blocks together to make a beat, tapping sticks against tin cans, humming and tapping the beat of the weekly poem.
We decided to create a provocation for the class using glass baby food jars and coloured water.
They were invited to use the wooden mallet to tap the jars and play a song.
So simple yet SO.MUCH.FUN!!!
We extended this by adding blank song sheets and having students come up with their own song and colouring in their music sheet. 
They LOVED this activity so much!
