Hi, I'm new to the getty site and I need some help.
I am teaching an art class to 3rd and 4th graders. A project that I
am interested in is to make rain sticks. They are natural wonders.
The real ones that I have seen are dried up cactus where the needles
fall inside. When you turn the stick, it sounds like rain. I know
how to make rain sticks out of paper towel tubes, but what I really
want to know is what is there origin and meaning? If anyone can help,
please let me know.
