Exploring With Sound

For Teachers 3rd - 4th
Students experiment with sound. In this sound lesson, student tape blocks inside a shoe box and then roll a marble inside. They use the sound of the marble hitting the blocks to discover where they are much like the use of sonar...
Lesson Planet

Sonar Mapping

For Teachers 7th - 9th
Students use a shoe box to create a seafloor model and use cardboard for layering inside of the shoe box to simulate the ocean floor. They probe the ocean floor to simulate sonar echoes. Finally, students graph their data to get a...
