Recently, we have been learning about the properties of sound. The knowledge and understanding that I want students to gain is the relationship between energy, vibrations and sound. Through our experiment, not only will students see and hear this relationship, but they will also manipulate volume and pitch.
Task 1: Create a instrument with recycled materials, focusing on creating a vibration. The more creative, the better!
Task 2: Before the experiment, students had to determine where the vibrations are created on their instrument and where will they place the contact mic to capture those vibrations.
Below you can hear the sounds made from then vibrations of students' instruments.
