Clang, Bang, Boom: The Physics of Sound
School Aged Classroom with Ms. Zoia and Ms. Camardese
During this week the children explored sounds in a variety of different ways. We explored how sound travels through vibrations. Here are some of the highlights from this week of summer camp.
On the first day we explore many different kinds of instruments to see how the sound was made.
We used recycled materials to build a wind chime to add to the garden.
The school aged classroom worked with the preschool classrooms to create a sound wall on the playground using recycled materials.
As we looked at the vibrations of sound the children used handmade drums to move confetti.
We used straws and masking tape to learn how sound waves move.
We used slinkys to show the difference between sound waves.
