Making Waves!

The Trailblazers explore the properties of light and sound waves as they seek to answer the question, "How can we communicate with light and sound?"


Opaque? Translucent? Transparent? Reflective?


How Do We Hear?

The Trailblazers research how the human ear helps us to hear by viewing videos, reading books, and examining one another's ears.


Animals communicate with sound to help them survive.

Students learn to construct a scientific argument using claims, evidence, and reasoning. They add diagrams to further explain their arguments.


Engineering Challenge:

Use the engineering process to plan, build, and test a device that will allow kids to talk to each other quietly on the bus.
