Hearing, Hearing Loss and the Human Ear. This is a more simplifed version of my - 1-2 day lesson package Hearing and the Human Ear which contains a greater amount of detail and is more suited for high school students. If you are interested please CLICK HERE to have a look. This lesson package has both physics as well as biology elements. The main focus of the lesson is to provide information about hearing to students in regards to what kinds of sounds are heard, the possibility of hearing loss caused by everyday activities and the features of the human ear which allow us to hear. There are 7 videos embedded right into the lesson as well as one website which links to an online hearing test. Simply view the lesson in slideshow mode and click the video/activity image. The video will automatically open in your browser. The videos are embedded on my site so that I can keep them updated and replace them if needed.

The student version of the PowerPoint contains multiple blanks that need to be filled in throughout the lesson. These blanks are conveniently underlined and bolded on the teacher copy. I have found this to be the most effective means of keeping my students engaged and active without having them write everything out. This also leaves more time for discussion and activities.
