Introductory lesson to sound KS3 Science

Introductory lesson to sound KS3 Science

This is an introductory lesson which I used for a mixed ability Y7 into Y8 on sound. It covers what causes sound and how sounds can be made louder or quiter. There is the stretch acitivity which then requires pupils to identify through a practical investigation how the pitch can be changed on different instruments.
