1. What Made This Sound?

Procedure: Part 3

Ask students to cheer (all say “yeah” together). Then ask, Where have you heard cheering before? Allow students to share answers with the class. Examples could include a ball game, spelling bee, musical event or pep rally. 

Give each student a copy of both “What Sound Is It?” pages. Tell students that you will be playing some sounds, but instruct them not to shout out answers about what they hear. Instead, students should circle the picture that best represents each sound. Play sounds from “What Sound Is It?” slide set. After the students have listened to all the sounds, lead a class discussion in which they share their answers.

  • Ambulance

Note: See Slide 30 for the rest of the procedure, and Slide 31 for the answer key to review with students.
