Sounds Like Science
Aimed at primary level, this pack contains twenty activities which explore the links between science and music. Linked to the topic of sound, the activities investigate: how vibrations travel through different materials, making instrument on which the notes may be changed, creating animal noises using voices and instruments, muffling sound, amplifying sound, investigating rhythm and making a speaker. Designed to demonstrate key ideas and concepts and to spark an interest in science and engineering, they could be used in class or within a science week or club. Teachers' notes are provided within the pack and include ideas for extension work. This resource is part of the British Science Association’s National Science & Engineering Week activity pack series.
