Changing Pitch of Sound - Set Three
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. The set focuses on the sound made when striking a drum with varying amounts of tightness (tension) to the drum skin.
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 One/Two". For other Clicker resources on the topic, search for sound on LearningGrids.
