Now hear this! Your students will be all ears when you guide them through this set of activities designed to explore the nature of sound. This award-winning volume gets students involved hands-on with activities that explore these concepts: How sounds are made, pitch, volume, how sound travels, and hearing sounds. Other activities: communicating with sound, acoustics, speed of sound, how people hear sounds, and more. Skills challenged include: predicting, observing, recording, following directions, cooperating, and critical thinking. Everything's here to help you make each project a success -- organizational procedures, required and optional materials lists (readily available), teaching suggestions, and complete, step-by-step directions for all projects. Also features a two-sided, full-color (one side) pull-out poster with a Sound Waves card game on one side (includes template for reproducible game cards) and What Does It Mean? on the other side. Illustrated throughout with helpful line art as well as fun recurring "mouse" characters. All 16 pages perforated for easy removal.
Here are teacher demonstrations, student hands-on activities, and student journals, plus a two-sided poster in each book that presents information on one side, and a learning game on the other. It is science education at its best, balancing process and content. 16 pp. each plus two-sided poster each.
We were thrilled when this series was given the "Teacher's Choice Award" by Learning Magazine. Their teacher panels gave the awards after using the materials in dozens of classrooms. The Intelligent and humorous Professor leads students from wonder through inquiry to testing theories. It is scienceeducation at its best, balancing process and content.
