The Year Four children showed super science investigation skills last week when they tried to find the answer to the question, ‘Does sound change as you get further away?’ First they made some predictions about what they thought might happen- and then they set off to prove if they were correct. They used data logging equipment to find the volume of a sound and repeated their measurements at different distances from the source of the sound. Everybody worked well as part of a scientific team; each taking turns to accurately measure the distance from the sound source, read the measurement on the data logger or record the results in a table. Each team concluded that the further away you are, the fainter the sound will be. We had great discussions about why this might happen. Excellent science Year Four!
