Crash Box

We took a risk in making a crash box this summer – we were worried about the noise, but the students loved it.

My good friend has a background in theatre and told me about a sound effects trick where you put breakables in a can and then dropped it from a height.  She came in with all the supplies and let the activity. It held their attention longer than anything else we’d done.

Again, it was a big hit, everyone designed their own crash and received a tiny mp3 file, like above, to put into a video game as a sound.
