Learning Goal: I can experiment with sound waves.
First, before we get into today’s science activities, watch the presentation below and learn a bit about how sound works.
If you have trouble viewing the presentation click here to see the PowerPoint: What is Sound
Next, select one or more of the experiments below.:
- Amplify Sound – Balloon Experiment
- Amplify Sound – Homemade Stethoscope
- See the Sound – Make a Model Eardrum
- The Classic Paper Cup and String Phone
- Xylophone Water Jars
Then, check you have the materials needed. Some things you may need to ask an adult to help you find.
Finally, conduct your experiment, or experiments.
Don’t forget to check with an adult sourcing materials if you need help, and always ask permission if you are going to grab materials from the kitchen, pantry or toolbox.
Challenge: Can you come up with your own sound based experiments?
Work sample to upload to OneNote: any images or reflections off your experiments.
