Sound and Hearing

From Teachers TV, this video is part of the Lesson Starters series. It contains five creative ideas for primary science lesson starters to introduce the concept of sound and hearing. Each of these videos presents the topic of sound and hearing in an exciting and accessible way, ending with a question designed to prompt class discussion. The topics explored include which materials can muffle loud noises, guessing the source of certain sounds and locating other sounds. They also look at the concept of a sound's pitch (frequency) via the context of playing African drums.
