    Changing Pitch of Sound - Read a Book

    In this Clicker Book, students read about the relationship between the pitch of a sound and features of the object that made it.

    They find out how (and why) the pitch of a sound can be changed by altering elements in simple instruments. These include varying the amount of air in which sound waves can vibrate, the length of a string across which sound waves can travel, and the tension of a drum skin.

    Students can talk and write about how and why the pitch changes in the examples featured in this book using the sets "Changing Pitch of Sound – Make a Book", and "Changing Pitch of Sound – Set One/Two/Three." For other Clicker resources on the topic, search for sound on LearningGrids.

  3. Custom Set

    Changing Pitch of Sound - Set One

    In this Custom Set, students show their understanding of the relationship between the pitch of a sound and features of the object that made it. This set focuses on the sound made when blowing across a bottle filled with different amounts of water.

    On the first page, sequence the pictures into the correct order – from the lowest to the highest pitch sound made. Then record an explanation of how the pitch of the sound changes – and why. Students can use a word bank to write about how and why the pitch of the sound changes.

    For alternative activities, in which students consider the changes in pitch of sounds made by other instruments, see the Custom Sets "Changing Pitch of Sound – Set Two/Three." For other Clicker resources on the topic, search for sound on LearningGrids.

  4. Custom Set

    Changing Pitch of Sound - Set Two

    In this Custom Set, students show their understanding of the relationship between the pitch of a sound and features of the object that made it. This set focuses on the sound made when plucking a string between two pens as the distance between the pens is changed.

    On the first page, sequence the pictures into the correct order – from the lowest to the highest pitch sound made. Then record an explanation of how the pitch of the sound changes – and why. Students can use a word bank to write about how and why the pitch of the sound changes.

  10. Custom Set

    Light Source Yes or No - Sorting

    This is a Custom Set for sorting pictures of objects according to whether or not they are a source of light. Students can decide which they think are or are not light sources by distinguishing between those which give off their own light as opposed to those that only reflect light off their surfaces.

    On the activity pages, click on the empty cells and choose the object which is or is not a light source. On the first pages, students sort the objects in pairs so that they focus on just two pictures at a time. On the final page, they sort all twenty objects into the two categories.

    For an alternative sorting activity on this topic, see the Clicker Board Set "Light Source Yes or No - Sorting". For related sets, search for light on LearningGrids.
