What is sound?
Lesson Title
Your Name Aja Harvey

Purpose For students to understand how sound is made and travels so that
it can be heard by the ear.

State/National/NGSS 4-PS3-2 Energy: Make observations to provide evidence that


Standards energy can be transferred from place to place by sound, light,
heat, and electric currents

4-PS3-3 Energy: Ask questions and predict outcomes about the


changes in energy that occur when objects collide

4-PS4-1 Waves and Their Applications in Technologies for


Information:
Develop a model of waves to describe patterns in terms of
amplitude and wavelength and that waves can cause objects to
move.

3.2.3.A2 Recognize that all object and materials in the world are
made of matter

3.2.3.A6 Distinguish between scientific fact and opinion, et al.

3.2.3.B2 Explore energy’s ability to cause motion or create


change. Explore how energy can be found in moving objects,
light, sounds, and heat

Materials & Water, cups, internet-ready device, screen/monitor, worksheets


Equipment
Instructional At the end of this lesson the students will be able to:
Objectives 1. Explain that sound is energy and is able to act on other matter
2. Identify differences in the visual representations of sound
3. Demonstrate how sound travels and how it is visually
represented

Activities cup on the dash board of the jeep rippling.
2) Students describe what they observe with the cup of water
3) Ask What they think is the reason the water moved

EXPLORE 4) Discuss various ways that sound is made and how matter
Activities is a key part of the process
5) In groups, students will make different pitched sounds
using objects in the room and their bodies
6) Students will observe and record what happens when the
sounds are made
7) Formulate and record predictions and evidence on how
sound travels
8) Predict what sound would look like if it could be seen with
the eyes as it moves using a piece of string along the floor

EXPLAIN 9) Student groups will share their predictions through


Activities demonstrations of the sounds that they made
10) Students discuss how sound travels in waves, using the
string activity as evidence
ELABORATE 11) Within groups, students will work on the What Made That
Activities Sound worksheet
12) In groups, students are tasked with making vocal sounds
and depicting the wave pattern on paper, as well as the
opposite, by drawing the wave pattern and making a sound
that would resemble the pattern.
EVALUATE 13) Students will be given a short test with constructed
Activities response items on what sound is, how it travels, and a
section where they must draw a representation of the
sound waves from pre-chosen sound clips
14) Students will then give self-evaluations in a science
journal, discussing the lesson, how they felt throughout
the process, what they liked about the work, what they did
not like, and how they improved or did not improve from
the lesson
