Our next unit of learning will take us into the world of sound. Students will identify that sound is produced when something vibrates. Those vibrations need a medium to travel through (solid, liquid, gas) and that the rate at which they vibrate determines the pitch. They will also explore that sound can be reflected or absorbed. Sound is a form of energy and it behaves in a way that we can predict. This unit is jam packed with activities to explore these concepts. They will also be competing against each other when they work to create the best sound proof box.
