Sound Learning Group - Week 10

This was our last week to explore a new activity about sound.  We used the laptop to listen to animal sounds and think about how our body perceives sound.  The children used plastic cups, ear muffs, and covered their ears with their hands to explore this idea.  I asked them how they hear the sound and they would point to their ears.  Some children put on the ear muffs and talked about how they could still hear.  I asked them if they could hear better without them and they would say “yes”.  Other children tried to cover their ears with their hands.  When they used the plastic cups the children said “there is an echo”.  The children realized although they can hear through the ear muffs and when they cover their ears, when their ears are open they can hear clearly.
