Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Conducting Sound - Section 2: Engage


It is important to understand why you are teaching what you are teaching and what does it mean for future lessons/learning.  In this case, I really want the students to understand the concept of sound wave conduction and how waves travel.  By developing an understanding of the concept, it will make the next lesson more efficient and allow for a deeper understanding by the students.  By having an understanding of conduction, they will be abel to focus on how and why the telephone works (in the next day's lesson).

Big Idea: Can you hear me now? It is hard to find a truly quiet place, especially when you are surrounded by first graders! Listen in to hear what your students find on a listening walk.
