Making and Seeing Sound
Posted 11/28/2017 11:44PM

First grade for the month of November worked on sound. Their first lesson they made sound and talked about pitch. Out of the 4 classes, one made a guitar, one made bag pipes, one made buzzing wings of a bee and they all made harmonicas out of tongue depressors and rubber bands.

Their next lesson they saw sound. Well at least the effects of sound on items. They made a model of an ear drum and made salt move, they also used iPads and recorded their voice in different tones and pitches (soft, loud, high, low) and then predicted the sound waves that the recorder on the iPad app recorded.
