Bop along with the Jazz Fly as we strike, shake, blow and scrap our journey through the science of sound.

Sound can be produced in many ways and helps us to experience, interact, learn, and enjoy the world around us.

Through the retelling of the children’s book, the Jazz Fly, students listen and interact to the rhythmic sounds of his musical journey. Students are encouraged to identify our senses and how we use them to experience our world. We explore, what is sound, how it is created and how it travels.
