Group time on Tuesday 13th.

In this inquiry, we will explore sound.
 
The Maple group used some elastics to explore the sounds we could make with this tool.
 
A child offered that we could make sound by pulling the elastic so we all tried to it. But we couldn't hear a sound.
So that led us to putting the elastic on some of the things we found in the classroom such as glass jars  and a clay pot, an ice cube tray, wooden trays, big paper tubes and our chair legs.
 
We found many ways to make the sound, we could hear with these tools.


Our important observation was that the elastic vibrated like a wave. Our hands wavetoo. What does this help tell us about sound? We will found out some mre as we continue to explore.
