The second graders are busy exploring the properties of sound and learning about the parts of the ear. They have done several experiments to see how sound waves travel. They discovered that without vibrations there is no sound. The students brought in “eggs-full-of-sounds” for us to guess, learned how to sign their names using the manual alphabet, and created original instruments. They enjoyed playing their instruments for some of the classes at Saklan. Who knew we had a brand new orchestra at Saklan!
