If a sound is made in a videoconference can the students hear it?
Mrs. Scaletta’s second grade science students took a
closer look at sound with the Greenbush science center in Kansas. The students were given tuning forks, plastic and string provided by Greenbush for experiments with sounds.
This session was a great activity for the Avon students to have better understanding of sound, the inner ear and how sound waves travel through the air to the human ear.
The students loved the activities and recorded great data involving volume and pitch. This session is aligned to Ohio’s science standards for second grade and provides a great introduction to Mrs. Scaletta’s science unit.
