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.
