3rd Grade Science ‘sounds’ like fun!

The third grade has started their exploration of sound energy! The past two classes we have explored the properties of sound, specifically, pitch and volume. Students use a tone generator today to form connections between pitch and vibrations.

I am including some resources that you may want to try at home withy our 3rd grader below.

  • Make a pitch-making guitar! Link
  • How a kazoo makes sounds Link
  • Additional sound activity “stereo hanger” Link

These are specific activities, but education.com and pbslearningmedia.org are great sites in general, too!

Next week, we will be working through sound stations to observe sound even closer, discovering how we hear, see and feel sound! The class will also explore how sound waves travel through differently.
