Mobile Apps for Hearing and Sound
Grade 3 Science
For this science unit, we will focus on the functions of the ear.
Grade three students can watch how sound enters the ear and is transmitted to other parts of the brain. They can toggle the label settings to have the parts of the ear labelled. Using features in the app, students can explore what happens as musical instruments are moved nearer to and further from the ear. Students can also explore the effect of their voice or surrounding sounds on the ear.
Explain Everything saves the explanation as a movie file that can be exported to the camera roll, YouTube, DropBox, Evernote, Google Drive, and more.
Grade three students will experiment with the app drawing, recording, and playing back the sounds. Students will be asked to draw a picture that includes high, low, loud, and soft sounds. They will save their picture and share it with others in their group.
Create a video documentary!
Grade three students can choose an animal and investigate how that animal hears and communicates. Using videolicious, they can present their findings and share these with classmates, family, and friends.
