This teacher's guide contains lesson plans, background information, and activities designed specifically for use by primary school teachers. A list of the unit objectives, including the concepts and process skills, and activity materials appears at the beginning of the packet. Each of the four lesson plans highlights the objectives, materials, and procedures involved in the lesson. Lessons include: (1) "Introduction to Sound"; (2) "How Do Objects Make Sounds?"; (3) "Pitch" (metal strip activity and rubber-band guitars); and (4) "Traveling Sounds" an evaluation and two worksheets ("How We Hear Sounds" and a crossword puzzle), complete the document.
