Observing the weather can involve all of our senses. In this activity, students simulate the sounds of a storm.
What might you hear as weather changes?
Can you identify what weather is happening from sound alone?
What kinds of weather make loud sounds, quiet sounds, high-pitched or low-pitched sounds?
The sounds we hear during a storm come from vibrations made by forces in the weather system and we can recreate similar vibrations using our hands and feet.
