Trick #3: Noise Check

Trick #3: Noise Check


1) For this trick, follow steps 1 and 2 from the Wiggle Wiggle Trick.

2) Now, instead of going to Properties, right-click on the correct image and go to Sound.


3) You will either need to record your own piggie-oink sound, or do a web search for one. You can search for something like "Pig Sound Royalty Free MP3." You want it to be an MP3 file, or you will have to change it to one and that is something I am NOT prepared to blog about.


4) Attach your sound and then lock all of your images and text. Now when students pick an answer, they will have Porkie the Pig checking their accuracy!Don't let the students know that the object will make a sound. It will be a fun surprise for them!
