CURRICULAR CORRELATIONS

CONTENT STANDARD: Physical Science

CONTENT TOPIC: Energy/Light/Heat/Sound

CONCEPT: Vibrating objects produce sound.

CONTENT OBJECTIVE: 0C1.00 To understand that sound is created by vibrating matter

INSTRUCTIONAL OBJECTIVE: The learner will:

1.01 experiment with ways sound is created.
1.02 observe that when sound is produced there is a vibration.
OUTLINE OF CONTENT:
I. Show how sound is made
II. Show that there is vibration when sound is produced

TN COMPONENT OF SCIENCE: Unifying Concepts of Science

TN GOAL:

To enable students to acquire scientific knowledge by applying concepts, theories, principles and laws from life/environmental, physical, and earth/space science.
TN THEME:
2.1 SCALE AND MODEL - The development of models provides a conceptual bridge between the concrete and the abstract, while the use of scales allows for a comparison of differences in magnitude between the model and the desired form.
TN STANDARD(S):
The learner will understand that:
2.1a A model is a representation used to simplify complex phenomena.

BENCHMARK: A model is a representation of a real item or concept. Toys serve as models assisting with the understanding of complex ideas.

2.1b Different models can be used to represent the same thing. The kind of model and its complecity depends on its purpose.

BENCHMARK: Various models may be constructed to represent a given item or concept.

MATERIALS:
Drum, rulers, paper clips, tuning fork, empty toilet tissue rolls, wax paper
SET:
INSTRUCTION:
CLOSURE:
Before we pass this around, let's review what we have learned so far. What was our lesson about today? (Sound) Tell your partner how sound is made (pause) Each of you will make a kazoo. A kazoo is a musical instruction that vibrates to make sound. (Make kazoos. Each child will need an empty toilet tissue roll, a rubber band, and a small square of wax paper.)
