We listened to a great piece that was made by people and sounded like rain.
It sounded exactly like rain.
You can listen to it here:
We made our own rain sounds in class:
Next we had a look at rainmakers which sound like rain and people believe will help bring rain to places where rain is badly needed.
We made our own rainmakers out of bottles of seeds, rice, pasta and water.
We listened to the sounds each made and we found that
rice or seeds in a bottle make great rain sounds, but pasta or water do not.
We are lucky in Ireland that we have plenty of water for our crops, for swimming in, for drinking and for washing. People in some other countries are not so lucky.
