Description

Overview:
This lesson strand is two in a series of two lessons that go through the steps of the Engineering and Design Process as needed for the construction of a prototype. The prototype is a musical instrument created through recycling landfill items. Based on the Landfill Harmonic from Paraguay, the motivation for the unit is GEDB: Music and Poverty- The Landfill Harmonic. The students in Paraguay (Latin America) live in a landfill and use the items to develop an orchestra. The unit clearly defines poverty and the resourcefulness that one must meet when living in a poverty culture. This prototype is the final product of a cross curricular, multicultural unit based on poverty and music with a direct connection to math, science, technology, engineering, arts, and multiple media skills. The links attached are created addressing the Landfill Harmonic. This lesson was developed by Christine Sisco as part of their completion of the North Carolina Global Educator Digital Badge program. This lesson plan has been vetted at the local and state level for standards alignment, Global Education focus, and content accuracy.
