4. Science

Understanding sound proofing.

First we need to remember how sounds travel through the air so we can hear them

If there is nothing for the sound to travel through - for example no air - then we can’t hear it as there is nothing to vibrate. Watch this really interesting short clip.

Watch this funny clip of a man trying to get to sleep

Now can you think of any times that you may want to get rid of sound travelling or muffle it a bit. Write a list of all the things you can think of . One example might be if you live near a busy road ( or maybe if you are being told off!!!) 

 

 

Your Task

Imagine this - You have been given an awesome drum kit for your birthday. Your room is next to the room where your family chats and watch television etc. You are fed up because the music and sounds from the TV are putting you off your drum playing. Your family are fed up because they can’t hear themselves speak or hear the TV. What can you do?

You can’t take the air out of the room because you can’t breathe. But can you use anything to stop the noise getting through ? There are a few things you can do which include the walls, the drums and maybe your ears - Have a go at drawing and labelling a soundproof room
