|1||Listening to Nature||When learning about sound, have your child put their hand on their throat and hum so that they can feel the vibrations. Explain that sound is made when something vibrates. Every sound heard in nature is caused by vibrations. Do an internet search of "Making musical instruments from natural materials" and have your student make an instrument using items from nature based on what was researched.|
Module Guiding Questions:
When a student starts a lesson ask them questions to check for prior knowledge and understanding and to review concepts being taught. At the end of the lesson ask the questions again to see if their answer changes.
