How the Body Works - Ears

Hear ye, hear ye! Here is a video that comes with an article to read, an interactive quiz, hands-on activities, and worksheets, all about the ear! Chloe and the Nurb take viewers on a virtual tour of the ear, discussing its structure and how it collects sound. With colorful graphic animation, see the pinna/auricle, ear canal, wax, eardrum, ossicles, and cochlea. It closes with a song, accompanied by Chloe on the ukulele. Elementary ear learners will enjoy the humor, and you will enjoy having additional resources readily available.
