How is sound produced? How do we hear sound differently? Can sound travel through different states of matter? How can we change the pitch and volume of sound?
These are the questions explored in this lesson. The lesson begins with questions and activities to engage the learner and set the purpose for the lesson. Use the pre-assessment tools to determine prior knowledge. Next, students will explore sound concepts through web links and hands-on activities described in the lesson. Information for direct instruction is also included. There are a host of interactive components and links to explore the topic. Extend learning through a project with an attached RUBRIC! Finally, evaluate student learning through a SMART Response assessment. If you do not have SMART Response, a paper version of the assessment is included for your convenience. If your studens are ready for more, there are several links and activities to enrich students and extend learning even further.
This lesson is ready-to-go. Everything you need is attached. No textbooks needed!
