5th Graders Experiment with Sound and Pitch

5th Graders Experiment with Sound and Pitch.

Students experimented today with sound using tuning pitch forks and making predictions about sound and pitch. Then we wondered what kind of sound and pitch would these big bowls make?  What would the sound be like from the big bowl? small bowl? How would the pitch be different? After we wrote our predictions in our Science notebooks we ended up with this......  What do you notice about the sounds?
