Sound and light are related in that they both travel in waves! First graders will be spending some time learning that sound can make matter vibrate and that vibrating matter can make sound!
A surprise fire drill couldn't hold us back from testing our sound technologies! While first graders were supposed to test their technologies in the cafeteria, it didn't work out because we spent the time outside during the fire drill! We were flexible, however, and tested our designs in class to see how they worked and if they could actually get someone's attention with a lot of noise. Way to go first grade!
