Sound Vibrations - Senses
Students experience vibrations using several of their senses, and design a test that uses their sense of hearing to judge the effectiveness of different solids to transmit sound vibrations.
Students study sound vibrations and pitches. In this sound vibrations lesson, students study sounds made with various instruments and record their observations on chart paper. Students watch videos about sounds, vibrations, and pitches. Students make a drum and then hear sounds and then watch demonstrations of visual vibrations. Students watch a video about drums and make their own pitch guitars.
Students identify sources of sound, explain why people can't see sound waves and change the tone and volume of sound waves.
Fifth graders explore and examine the basic properties of sound. In pairs, they speak through a balloon and listen to the sound vibrations, and listen to a ticking clock or watch through a variety of materials and identify the differences in volume. They also participate in a string and hanger demonstration, and observe a tuning fork in water.
Sounds Like Great Science!
A phenomenal lesson on sound is here for your third graders! In it, learners engage in hands-on activities, watch video, take part in Internet activities, and complete tasks in cooperative groups in order to explore the world of sound and how sound plays such an important role in people's lives.
Creating Sound Vibrations
Fourth graders create sound vibrations using different objects. In this sound vibrations lesson plan, 4th graders go to centers with different sounds at them, and then use objects to create their own sounds. Students discuss their findings.
Seeing and Feeling Sound Vibrations
Groups rotate through a series of stations and work with a partner to observe sound waves. Children describe sound in terms of pitch, volume, and frequency. To apply their new knowledge, the class considers how these observations can help people who cannot hear or talk. The teacher has a good amount of preparation to do for this lesson.
Decoding Made Easy
A lesson on decoding skills is here for you. In it, young readers work hard to learn all of their consonant and vowel sounds and how to manipulate those sounds to read different words. The lesson may have been written by a speech teacher, because the techniques presented are very specific to that type of training. Shaving cream, colored markers, and attention to the shape of the mouth and vibrations in the throat are all utilized. A valuable lesson for any teacher who needs to help their struggling readers.
It's a Gas!
Learners investigate gases and their properties by completing 4 activities. In this gases lesson plan, students perform activities to show that gases take up space, they diffuse, and that odors and vibrations pass through gases. They observe that oxygen is needed for combustion, that carbon dioxide gas is release through a chemical reaction and that hydrogen gas is flammable.
What is Sound?
Second graders discuss sound and describe them. In this investigative lesson students observe sound through their eyes, bodies and ears.
Sound Around You
Learners examine physics by conducting a sound experiment. For this vibrations lesson, students read the book All About Sounds and identify how sound vibrations can shake and move physical objects. Learners create a string telephone using plastic cups, string, and a clothes hanger.
Students identify sources and importance of sound, discuss sounds heard on way to school, explain why sound waves can be "seen", and participate in various classroom activities and experiments that illustrate how sound travels.
Let's hear it for Sound!
Second graders create a variety of sounds and recognize that vibration causes sound. In this sound lesson, students read books about sound and create tin can telephones, spoon sounds, a musical box and sound in bottles. Students complete worksheets
The Five Senses: Hearing
Second graders explore sound vibrations. In this five senses instructional activity, 2nd graders demonstrate a sound vibration with a can, balloon, and rubber bands. Students observe the sound vibration when they yell into the can. Students write a journal entry on their observations.
Design an Instrument
Students design an instrument. In this sound, vibration and pitch lesson, students learn about the characteristics of sound, vibration and pitch. Students design a guitar using the assembled craft materials and demonstrate how they would be used to create different pitch.
Students view video clips about sound and vibrations, explore how sound travels, and create their own sound waves.
What Does Motion Have to do with Sound?
Second graders investigate and explore sound energy. They investigate how the vibrational motion moves through matter in waves. Students describe sounds and vibrations. They observe that vibrational motion creates sounds. Students record their observations.
What is a Sound?
Second graders explore the concept of sound. In this sound lesson, 2nd graders discover what sound, vibrations, and pitch are through several experiments. Students watch a Power Point presentation that allows them to complete a graphic organizer.
The Science of Sound and Musical Instruments
Students identify the components of sound. They describe the relationship between pitch and frequency and explain the terms sympathetic vibrations and resonance. They perform simple experiments about the world of sound and explain the process of hearing.
Light And Sound To the Rescue
Fourth graders use the design process to construct devices that send distress signals through air and water for purposes of rescue. They construct devices that use light and sound to assist in nautical rescues and use the knowledge gained throughout this unit to complete the assignment.
