Objective:

Students will make a flute from the stem of the papaya leaf.

Materials Needed:

Papaya stems, blades for cutting notches.

Directions/Activity:

Cut a green papaya stem between the leaf and the plant. Depending upon the kind of flute you want, you can
cut a wide or narrow stem. A good length for your flute is between twelve and fourteen inches. Make
notches at equal distances on the stem.

To play a tune, cover some of the notches with your fingers and blow into the others to make a sound.
Depending upon which holes you cover, a new sound can be made.

Discuss what other natural materials are used to make musical instruments. How is music important to our
well-being? What kinds of natural music can we find in our environment?
