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!
First graders are experimenting with sound. Using a tuning fork, students are seeing what happens to a tuning fork when you place it in the air around us, against their hand, and in water. First graders are recording their observations and developing a model for how sound interacts with matter. Way to go first grade!
