This unit helps students develop the idea that sound is an actual thing, a wave of vibrations traveling through the air. Equipped with this understanding, students can begin to make sense of how sound and music work.
Mystery 1: How far can a whisper travel? (Standards: 4-PS4-1 and 4-PS4-3)
Mystery 2: What would happen if you screamed in outer space? (Standards: 4-PS4-1)
Mystery 3: Why are some sounds high and some sounds low? (StandardS: 4-PS4-1)
We will also be studying the Scientific Process as we work on our Monthly Project for January and February.d and music work
