There are three ways to play BeastBox:

  1. Just play! Let students treat BeastBox as their own mixing board and create music from favorite animal voices. Add together real wild animal sounds and beatbox loops from Ben Mirin to build endless combinations.
  2. Sort Animals by Ecosystem. Encourage students to try to unlock Beast Mode by bringing five animals from the same ecosystem on stage together. In Beast Mode, you can listen to a song composed entirely of sounds from the featured ecosystem, while controlling the moves of the animals as they dance.
  3. Discover the BeastBox Animals. Students can learn about each animal and its habitat by clicking the info button hovering over each animal’s head onstage. They can see a photo and hear a field recording of the animal, and learn what ecosystem it lives in and how it communicates.
