The Five Senses - Lesson 3: Hearing

Activity - Favorite and Alarming Sounds

Objective
Students say that sounds can warn us of danger.

Materials
Sticks; balls; bells
Tape of sound of the siren, cry for help, fire bell, etc.

Procedures
Hide several objects (sticks, balls and bells that produce sound) behind a box or board. Students listen to the sounds each object makes and guess what it is. The students make a graph of the number of students that prefer a particular sound; they graph the data and from the graph, select the class favorite sound.
