Clare the party professor will be in our class for three sessions. She will be doing some science experiments and the children will be participating. Yesterday we were learning about how sound travels through the air and water.
Clare used a tuning fork to make the water ripple.
Amelia could hear the sound through the wire and string.
The children got a chance to play tunes on their water whistle.
Clare put little bolts inside the balloons. The children moved the balloons to get the bolt moving and they felt the vibrations through the balloons.
The plastic tubes made humming sounds when they were swung around.
The children loved the excitement. Two more weeks to go.
