Fun with Rulers and Sounds

Fun with Rulers and Sounds

Students in Ms. Atkinson's first grade classroom had fun making different sounds with rulers this week.

Ms. Atkinson said the students investigated vibrations as a source of sound effects for movies.

The students each took a ruler and held it off the side of the desk to make a sound with it. 

They used an assortment of wooden, metal and plastic rulers.  

One of the activities they had to do was create a "boing" sound every time a cartoon bouncy ball hit the ground. 

After the ruler exercise, Ms. Atkinson went over different vocabulary words, including the meaning of a half measurement and also the order of numbers on a number line.
