Making Waves Activity - free hands-on science activity for 4th grade elementary kids. Part of a complete unit on Waves: Sound, Waves, & Communication. Meets Common Core and NGSS.

So my friend hates this song and a small part of me wants to learn it on the ukulele just for him haha!

### How to Make a Pan Flute

A Pan Flute. Shorter pipes produce higher frequency sound waves and a higher pitch. Good activity when you teach a unit on sound. The link gives you exact measurements to make notes in a true scale so you can play songs. The shortest straw must be exactly half the length of the longest straw.

Pitch and Frequency. I found this helpful site that explains physics in a manageable way, offers activities, help, and provides ideas for assessments.

### Changing the Pitch of Sound

Science Fair: Changing the Pitch of Sound

Human Jack, Jack Frost, Pitch Frost...or is it Jack Black? We could always just say Evil Jack, but it doesn't sound as cool.

Tesla said it. Einstein Agreed. Science proved it. It is a known fact that everything—including our own bodies—is made up of energy vibrating at different frequencies. That being said, can sound frequencies affect us? Most music worldwide has been tuned to A=440 Hz however, studies regarding the vibratory nature of the universe indicate that this pitch is disharmonious with the natural resonance of nature A=432 Hz and may generate negative effects on human behaviour and consciousness.

### Explore the Science of Sound with a DIY Spinner

Science experiment for kids. How to make a spinning noise maker.

### Science of Sound: Musical Instrument STEAM Design Challenge (pitch and volume)

### Sound Lesson Plan & Activities Bundle

Here is an entire unit on sound complete with lesson plans and 4 activitie for students to explore concepts about sound such as: frequency, pitch, sound waves. Common Core Standards also included. Objectives: The students determine what makes a sound loud or soft, conclude that sound travels in waves, demonstrate the effect that length has on the sound of a vibrating material, demonstrate how frequency affects the pitch of sound, and create an instrument that produces sound.

This one actually shows what higher frequency (pitch) looks like in a waveform diagram.

Exploring Pitch and the Science of Sound

Outdoor chimes, My father built these for me. The stand is made out of PVC pipe and the chimes are electrical conduit. Each chime is made in graduated lengths for different sound pitch. by Corinne Carr

Water Play, Music Play & Children: A Natural Combination at Children's Play Music. This is amazing. Spend six minutes and watch the video. Then, grab the kids and a big tub of water and get ready for music, play, and the science of noise! PS - I am totally making a packing tape drum!!
