Design and Technology and Music

The Ancient Egyptians played string instruments as a form of music. They may have used reeds to form the strings of the harps or guitars.

Design, make and evaluate a guitar or a harp for the Ancient Egyptians to use, following the plan below.


Day 1 – Design and make your guitar or harp

Day 2 – Improvise and play music to play on your guitar or harp

Day 3 – Evaluate your guitar or harp. Did it play as you wanted it to play? If you made it again what would you change and why?


We'd love to see pictures of what you have made!
