Introduces how sound is made; how it travels; the terms "pitch," "volume," and "compression waves"; how ears detect sound; and the way vocal cords work. Views the parts of an ear and how they function to allow us to hear sounds. Uses easily replicated experiments to demonstrate sound's principles.

    Love that we have access to videos that are captioned. Allows our students; hearing and dhh to watch the same videos together.
