Sound and hearing (8L) Science revision
The following revision games and activities are to help students learning about ‘sound and hearing’. In many KS3 schemes of work this will be unit 8L. Students will learn about physical components of the ear (canal, cochlea, eardrum, etc), as well as features and measurements of sounds (amplitude, frequency, pitch, range, etc).
Many activities on What2Learn are free to access and the links below will help you to access the activities you want. The best way to play these activities is to sign up for a What2Learn account which will allow students to enjoy our fantastic in-built rewards (such as a virtual farm to manage) and to compete against their friends. Teachers will also be able to see the scores their students have attained in the revision games.
