Making Sense of Sound in Science!

Our classroom has truly been a “buzz” of activity during Science lately!  Some of the questions we have “sounded off” on include;

– Why is sound important?

– How are sounds produced?

– How do humans produce sounds?

– How do humans hear sounds?

– What is pitch and how can we change it?

– What is volume and how can we change it?

– Does sound travel best through solids, liquids or gas?

Check out some photos of our activities below.
