Insights: Grades 2-3 Sound Student Science Notebook
Author(s): Education Development Center Inc
This module helps students become more aware of the nature of sound and the diversity and abundance of sounds around them. They begin by listening to recorded sounds. They then make their own sounds with their bodies, with drums, and with other instruments--exploring vibration, pitch and volume, and the transmission of sounds.
Writing is an integral part of learning science in the Insights curriculum, and a critical skill used by scientists. One of the most important tools of the scientist is the science notebook. In this notebook, students will record questions and predictions; observations and data; and interpretations and conclusions. Students may also use this notebook for informal sketches, notes, and reflections on work.
