Our students will be studying sound and light. This science kit provides experiments that help students develop an understanding of how to observe and manipulate sound and light. Below are some investigations we will be doing to learn more about sound and light. * Identify different kinds of sounds and the information those sounds convey. * Explore a number of musical instruments to find out how to change volume (how loud and soft a sound is) and pitch (how low or high a sound is). * Through their firsthand explorations with a xylophone, one-string guitar, table bass fiddle, spoon gong, and kalimba, students will explore how to manipulate sound and develop simple models for how sound travels from a source to the receiver. * Find out what happens when materials with different properties are placed in a beam of light, either a flashlight or sunlight. * Use materials to create interesting shadows. * Work with mirrors to see how light reflects from one place to another.
