Yr 3 Science and Sound

Year 3 girls have begun to explore how sound is made and how noises are heard. Using drums, rice, tuning forks and water they explored vibrations and how they differ in strength when the volume changes. They used careful observation and had a bit of fun hitting the drums at different strengths to watch the rice inside jump, thus learning that larger vibrations cause louder sounds. It was an exciting afternoon enjoyed by all with lots of giggles too.
