Vibrations We Can See, Feel, and Hear

Students create instruments to help them understand how sounds are made. They use wooden rulers, tongue depressors, turning forks, ping pong balls, and various other items to aid in designing an instrument. As an option, Power Point may be used in order for students to create slides with pictures listing their favorite sounds.

Hi, I was recently hired as a middle school science teacher in Newark, NJ. I received a call on a Friday and was asked to begin the following Monday. As a new teacher, and with only 3 days to prepare, I was really feeling the pressure. The school requires 2 weeks of lesson plans every Sunday, so I began searching the web for help. Thank goodness I found Lesson Planet. I still use the site everyday to form great lessons and activities for the kids.
