Don't give up on the students! Take them outside, if at all possible. I have
been doing this same lesson for years with great results. I teach 6-12
graders, though. The majority of students enjoy this lesson and comment we
should do it again.
They are amazed at the sounds they hear when they close their eyes and just

Subject: [teacherartexchange] Ambient noise
I found a lesson plan for a drawing assignment that I really liked where the
students sit outside close their eyes and then draw the sounds that they
hear, but I teach some wild and wacky 5th graders who aren't going to be
able to control themselves if I take them outside - so, can anyone recommend
a resource for cd's or MP3's of ambient outdoor noises that I could use
