This is an AMAZING lesson that shows your students the effect sound has on matter. Even though we can't visually see the effect a grand piano has as it vibrates the floor, students are shown the effects it has on sand, water, and other types of matter.

The Lesson begins with a short music video of musicians that have set up their instruments as science experiments. Each time they play their instrument water, sand, goo, and even fire demonstrates a visual effect the sound waves have.

Students will then be shown various experiments showing the effect of low frequencies on a water hose which Makes the water stand still. I myself could not believe it, and didn't feel comfortable putting it in my lesson plan. So I tried the experiment myself and IT ACTUALLY WORKS!!

Other experiments in this lesson plan include showing students the Geometrical Shapes & Designs Sound Vibrations Create on Water, Sand, & Goo. Also includes an experiment which projects Double Sound waves causing small drops of water to levitate. I honestly had left myself speechless after making this lesson plan.

Science Experiment:

This is up to you, but either in small groups, or as a class students will conduct an experiment. The materials that will be needed are:

Water
Corn Starch
Small Container
Speaker (Connected to a Computer)

Students can observe for themselves that sound has an effect on matter. If you choose to do only water, or sand you can do that as well. Or you can do all three!

Doing the water hose may be difficult unless your school has one outside BUT PLEASE NOTE:
Water + Electricity + Kids = No More Career. I don't recommend it.
