Sound - Listen Up! - Year 4

The rock stars of the world need your help! They want their children to come to their concerts and rock-out, but they want to protect their precious ears! Find out all you can about sound; how it travels, pitch and volume. Then investigate materials to see which will provide the best insulation against sound. Be ready to present your ideas to a famous panel.

Includes 6 session plans & resources:

01 - Sound walk
02 - Good vibrations
03 - Pitch and volume
04 - Pardon?
05 - Ssssshhhhhh!
