- Understand that vibration causes sound
- Make a sound and identify what vibrates to cause the sound
Young students know that they can hear sounds, but do they know what causes sounds? In this lesson they will learn that sounds are caused by vibrations, and they will build a fun musical instrument of their own.
In the Sound and Vibrations 2: Make Sprinkles Dance, students will learn that sounds can also cause vibrations.
