This intermediate-level workbook is geared toward making students aware of the importance of sound in our daily lives. Each lesson is keyed to a specific science process skill, and incorporates writing, observing, data analysis, and making conclusions. Students record the activities in a “Sound Off” journal portion of the lesson.
Topics include: what is sound, what causes sound, how sound travels, echoes, how sound is measured, sounds in nature, the structure of the ear, and careers.
The front of the workbook provides several pages of historical perspective to this field of physical science before covering basic concepts, misconceptions, definition of terms, science standards, and science processing skills. The rest of the workbook contains Student Inquiry Activity Sheets that offer hands-on experiments and activities that correspond to the above information. Black-and-white reproducible pages.
