Sound – Science Physical Processes

Posted by:

Physical Processes - SoundSound is just one section of Physical Processes, which is part of the Science Curriculum. Here is a whole set of web links to provide easy access to games and many other resources which will assist teachers in their science planning and will also help children learn about sound, either at home, or in the classroom. If you have some great links that you would like to see on this page, please send them to us in order that we may add them to the list.

Sound Science for Kids – “When the air molecules inside your ear begin to shake, they wobble tiny hairs inside your ear that are connected to nerves under your skin. If your ears are working, these nerves then send messages to your brain to tell you that you heard a noise.”(Sound Science for Kids)

Ducksters – Physics for kids – Basics of sound – “The vibration is started by some mechanical movement, such as someone plucking a guitar string or knocking on a door. This causes a vibration on the molecules next to the mechanical event (i.e. where your hand hit the door when knocking). When these molecules vibrate, they in turn cause the molecules around them to vibrate. The vibration will spread from molecule to molecule causing the sound to travel.” (Ducksters).  Learn about pitch, waves, how you hear and lots more!
