This practical Year 1 science lesson idea gets a class to match sounds to their sources. Present an array of images and their accompanying sounds, for children to learn and recognise the associations.
The sounds include a doorbell, car horn, opening a can of drink, sawing a log, drilling a hole and cracking walnuts. This exercise encourages primary pupils to think about their auditory surroundings.
At the end, there's a quiz featuring 10 mystery sounds, presenting the opportunity for Key Stage 1 science pupils to guess what the sounds are.
