Did You Hear? 2nd Grade Knows the Science of Sound!

Did you hear that?

This week, the Class of 2031 finished their sound unit in science. During this unit of study, 2nd Grade students learned about volume, pitch, vibration, and sound waves. They listened to a variety of sounds to identify whether they produced a sound at a loud or soft volume, and at a high or low pitch.
Students were also able to witness an experiment where teachers produced different pitches using crystal glasses filled with varying amounts of water. They watched an amazing video of musicians "playing" glasses. The unit culminated with all 2nd Grade students creating homemade instruments that they were able to share with their classmates.
Great job, 2nd Grade. We think you're playing our tune!
