Fall Group Lessons: Instrument FUN!

We had a special guest come to present to us for our fall group lesson! Darrin Jackson brought in and showed us a lot of different instruments, many of which he made. 

After he was done with his presentation, students learned about musicians and instruments in the medieval times and then completed their first quest challenge. 

We had a great time, but don't take my word for it... check out the pictures and video of it all!
