In this activity, students will make sound three ways: by blowing across the top of a bottle, tapping a glass, and running a finger around the rim of a glass. Students will make predictions and test how the level of water in the bottle/glass affects pitch. Students will “tune” their instruments and play a simple song.
In this activity students will experiment with how far sound travels naturally, as compared to how far it travels with satellite amplification.
In this activity, students will gain an understanding of the structure of the human eye and analyze and classify optical illusions.
In this activity, students will explore the nature of human hearing by attempting to determine the location of coins dropping at different locations in a room. Then, they will design a hearing device to increase their sound-locating success.
In this activity, students will construct a model ear to learn how different materials transmit sound.
Students will identify that the human brain uses many sources of information to understand and react to the surroundings.
