These are task cards I created to use to check for mastery with our sound unit. These are designed with 4th grade in mind, but they could be used in other grades are remediation, pre-teaching, or extension. Each is open ended to ensure they are not just guessing the answer and not really taking the time to think about and apply what they know. I included an answer sheet students could use to record their thoughts. It is large enough to allow for the short answer. I have my students use notebook paper to save on copies, but the option is there! You can copy the answer sheets front to back.
~how sound is produced
~how sound moves through various mediums
~parts of a sound wave
~how humans hear sounds
~amplitude (What is it and scenarios using knowledge of amplitude)
~pitch (What is it and understanding how the wave changes for high and low pitch)
~how to change pitch (given an object, students must determine how to change pitch)
~knowing how frequency correlates to pitch
These could be used as individual practice, an assessment, a group activity, homework, or for an early finisher.
I hope your class gets great use out of these task cards!
