How are sounds made? How is sound volume measured? Explore decibels and levels of loudness.
Have students think of as many objects and creatures that make sounds as they can. Use Crayola® Crayons to draw their pictures on index cards. Draw one item on each card.
Students combine their cards with classmates in a small group. Think of several ways to classify the pictures using different attributes (for example: country or city sounds; natural or created sounds; pleasing and harsh sounds). Sort the cards using one of these sets of attributes. Choose new categories and sort them again. Repeat until the cards are sorted by all of the categories.
Students find out how scientists measure loudness. Share information about decibels and the equipment that measures them. If possible, measure the sounds of some of the items on the cards.
Students gather as a group again. Decide whether sounds of the items on the cards are soft, medium, or loud. Rank order the sounds from softest to loudest.
