Product Description

My goal at Little SciFi Labs is to create engaging, hands-on science lessons inspired by children's literature. This lesson plan and included STEAM activities were inspired by the heartwarming book, Horton Hears a Who! by Dr. Seuss. The lesson contains two versions of a STEAM activity to choose from – you could do both, but they are very similar.


Students will work together to make something new, they must make some noisy things to save Whos from Beezle-Nut Stew! In Who Noises! and Who Voices!, students will plan, create, test, modify, and present their custom-made noise makers to the class. You will use a decibel meter to test the students’ inventions.

This product includes:

  • A detailed lesson plan with 2 variations of a STEAM activity, with materials, steps, discussion questions, and an alignment to the national science standards (NGSS)
  • Instructions for teachers on how to guide students from the STEAM activity
  • Student planning sheet for groups to brainstorm, build, test, and make adjustments
  • Class results sheet to record all groups’ decibel levels and critical thinking questions
  • Student Results and Reflection sheet where students can quantify the results and make connections.

This lesson and activity are aligned to the NGSS Performance Expectation – 1-PS4-4. Use tools and materials to design and build a device that uses light or sound to solve the problem of communicating over a distance.
