Good Vibrations Science
How do we hear everything around us? We use our ears! Now can we use our ears very carefully to try to identify what these sounds are?
Listen to the sounds in the PowerPoint. What do you think they are?
When you hear something it is caused by vibrations (object shaking/moving).
Reception - Cut and Stick worksheet - Which instruments do you have to bang, shake and blow?
Year One - Experiment - Explore a range of objects to identify how long they vibrate for (make a sound for). Time them using a stop watch. Then draw the pictures in order according to length of time we can hear them and write the results underneath. Does the sound of the object have any influence on how long the object will make a sound?
