In this activity (7th activity on the page), learners use their sense of hearing to find a "sound match." Learners shake containers filled with items like dry seeds, sand, beans, etc.
In this game-like activity (5th activity on the page), learners explore their auditory acuity as well as the importance of having two ears.
In this activity, learners construct drums out of everyday containers (like bowls or food containers) and shrink wrap. Learners use a hair dryer to affix and tighten the shrink wrap to the container.
In this activity, learners make some music by constructing a kazoo out of a simple plastic drinking straw. Use this activity to explore sound, vibrations, and music.
In this outdoor game, learners role play predator and prey to explore the importance of keen hearing and silent stalking skills in the animal world.
In this game (4th activity on the page) about hearing, learners test their ability to identify various sounds without looking.
In this activity (described on pages 39-42 of PDF), learners make a paper wheel (on pages 57-60 of PDF) that shows them the relative loudness of different sounds.
In this activity (on pages 25-32 of PDF), learners make models of the inner ear out of pipe cleaners.
In this activity, learners investigate the sense of hearing and plan and conduct their own experiments.
Make a hilarious honker! Fasten a piece of string through a hole in the end of a plastic cup and discover the hilarious sounds you can make.
This game is like regular bingo, except the clues are sounds.
This activity (page 2 of the PDF under SciGirls Activity: Horse Ears) is a full inquiry investigation into animal behavior and communication.
In this activity, learners use sound to figure out, or infer, the position of objects. Learners create a maze inside a shoebox with blocks of wood.
In this interactive game, learners compare their music-listening skills with that of a three-month-old baby.
In this activity, learners investigate sound wave science, in stereo! Learners construct a "stereo" out of a metal coat hanger and piece of string to explore sound vibrations.
This is a virtual representation of a sound mixer containing pre-looped sounds of animal, insect, and environmental noises.
Discover how sound travels and what materials make better sound conductors. Can you hear better with your fingers in your ears? Find out with a coat hanger and some string!
Use echolocation to find others and experience how whales’ senses have adapted to suit their environment. In pairs, learners are blindfolded and use containers filled with marbles to find each other.
In this design challenge activity, learners build a four-stringed instrument that can play a tune.
