I created and carried out this unit with my second graders a couple years ago, and it was very successful! Everything has been updated to match the new CCSS. The whole thing takes approximately 12-13 school days, which is almost 3 weeks. There are lots of hands on experiments and activities to keep your kids entertained and learning about sound! See "Download Preview" for an example lesson.
Everything has been laid out for you including materials, daily procedures, center lesson plans, and journal activities. Before you begin, you will need to gather some tuning forks, a jeopardy template, and the Soundscape Junior Game (which can be found on Amazon for a good price) unless you choose to leave those out of your unit.
Follow lesson plans in this order: Lesson 1, Lesson 2, Lesson 3, Lesson 4, Lesson 5, Center 1, Center 2, Center 3, Center 4, Center 5, Lesson 7, Lesson 8. (Note: The students do 1 Center a day since they take up time, so 5 Centers=5 Days)
