Third graders first focused on representing sound tactilely, or through touch. Using various materials, they created a beat that someone else could follow, adding a literary device that authors use to strengthen their writing: onomatopoeia!
Spectrograms are visual representations of sound. Third graders changed colors, shapes, and sizes of each of their spectrogram's components to show differences in sounds.
They listened to the alarm and flight calls of the fictitious bird: the Speckled Bubblebird!
