How sound is made (PPT)

author avatar

You’re downloading this resource from TheBombadillo


A PowerPoint (PPT) on how Sound is made, ideally aimed at Year 5. Explains about vibration and how a sound travels through the air, plus a few tasks along the way and discussion points. Simple start to the topic if you're unsure how sound is made. Please review/comment so I can amend it to make it better in the future. EDIT - SMLeigh is correct, on slide four you will need to discuss the ear drum. My apologies!
