Hearing Sounds

Children conducted a mini investigation with a drum and counters to find the link between the size of the vibrations and the loudness of a sound. They found out that vibrations from sounds travel through a medium to the ear. The children learnt that sound travels as vibrations pass from particle to particle. We then worked as small groups and created and performed an educational programme to explain how different sounds travel.
