Hearing Sounds – Left or Right?

In Science we used our sense of hearing to listen to the sounds around us.

We went into the playground to listen to and note down the sounds that we could hear and the source (where it came from). We could hear the gates closing, children laughing, cars passing by and aeroplane engines.

We then made a circle to do a test using our ears. One child sat in the middle with a blindfold whilst a child clapped that was sat in the circle.

The child that was blindfolded covered one ear and had to point to where the sound was coming from. We repeated the test, but this time with both ears uncovered.

To make it a fair test we repeated it by taking turns because different people hear better than others.

In our next investigation we will be planning to change a variable to test our hearing.
