Science: Sound

To record the types of sounds you hear around your house inside and out. 


Firstly - write down your prediction of where you think the quietest place in your house would be with an explanation. Then write where the loudest places in your house would be with an explanation. 


Now, go on a sound walk: choose at least 5 different areas of your house inside and out and write down what sounds you hear - what are the sounds and what is making the sound for e.g. if you are in the garden you might hear a bird and you hear it because tweets which means it makes sounds from its mouth. Make sure you describe the sound too - is it mechanical, loud, soft, natural, repeating.


Challenge - if you have an instrument in the house can you describe the sound it makes and how it makes the sound?
