Rock it Lab
Students worked in teams in Samantha Duffy’s ‘Rock it Lab’ to make decisions about what types of materials and shapes might amplify sound during a DW seventh-grade science class experiment. They tested their theories using recorded music on an amplifying device on their iPads.
“Students have learned that sound travels through different mediums, but this is a hands on activity to test the information that we have learned in class, explained Mrs. Duffy. “It gives them an opportunity to try different things, collaborate with their peers, and learn from each other,” she said.
