SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY-This module allows students to explore various sound systems in "sound centers." In the centers, they make and compare sounds by striking, plucking, and blowing through objects. They describe and record their explanations of how the systems produce sounds. They search for sounds at home and in the neighborhood and describe and compare how those sounds are produced. In later lessons, the students investigate ways to change pitch and volume by changing something in a sound system. They develop a musical system using simple equipment and tools and describe how their system "makes music."

BSCS Science T.R.A.C.S. includes a Teacher's Edition, complete with facsimile pages of the student guide, placed exactly where you need them with the Teaching Strategies. In addition, the Teacher's Edition incorporates the following features, designed to help you organize and manage an activity-based science program within your busy teaching day.
