Sense of Sound / Malta

Miriam Schembri 2007-11-11

Hearing (or audition) is one of the traditional five sense, and refers to the ability to detect sound. When sound waves reach our ears, we know that we have heard a soft sound or a loud sound. The sound passes through the outer ear and is funneled into the middle ear, where it bounces off the ear drum and is amplified through three tiny bones: the hammer, anvil, and stirrup. These are the smallest bones in our bodies. Together they are smaller than an orange seed. It then travels into the inner ear, which is filled with fluid, through the cochlea, and passes the vibration of the sound through the hair cells to our brains.

We explore the sense of sound. We make a game with six containers. We fill two containers with rice, another two with dried beans and the last two with salt. We put on the caps and play the game. We have to find the matching sounds in the containers.
