Several years ago, I decided that in order to get everything taught, I needed to use cross-curricular activities as much as possible. As I have taught units on sound throughout the years, I found that the hearing process lends itself quite well to reinforce the skill of sequencing. In this product, you will find an activity with how we hear and placards for your students to “act out” the process of hearing. Students use clues that are in each step to help them figure out the sequence of the hearing process. This product could be used as a learning center.
Each student will need a copy of the activity, glue stick, scissors, and a sentence strip. Sentence strips with color seem to work better, as the steps seem to show up better. If you wish, students may draw the different parts of the ear on each section of the sequence. I have included pictures to demonstrate. Key is included.
I have used this activity with 2nd through 5th grades.
