Second Grade Instrument Family Unit

The second grade has been learning about the four families of instruments, and how each instrument fits into the orchestra. Our unit includes why the instruments are grouped as they are, how they make sound, their pitch, as well as learning to identify the instruments by listening.

Here are a few apps and resources that you can enjoy at home!

Meet the Orchestra


This app introduces you to all of the basic instruments in the orchestra as well as their family groupings.  There are also many fun quiz games to play to see what you know!




My First Orchestra App:
