Make science homework meaningful by learning science by doing!
Help students to understand how sound travels. Students get wildly excited by the astounding results when the opposite of what they expect happens.
Included are: teacher notes, a reproducible lab sheet for your students, and post-experiment teacher notes which explain what students will have observed, along with a kid-friendly explanation, and a paper-saving reproducible version. The classroom-tested instructions are simple and require only materials students already have at home.
This is a hands-on lab that is incredibly easy for a teacher to implement. Parents enjoy seeing kids doing an actual experiment at home and watching the surprising results.
Your students will love doing this. In the process of completing this physical science experiment, they will experience STEM, learn about sound energy and sound waves, Conservation of Energy and energy transformation and the scientific method.
This experiment works very well for distance learning and remote learning since the few required materials are things that students already have in their homes. This can also be an in class science project or learning center or learning station if you prefer.
