Sounds in the morning

Learning goals: Using different senses, making and describing observations, paying attention to details


Imagine that you were a little ant. Lie down in your bed in the morning and listen to the sounds you hear. What are they? Do you hear sounds from inside the house? Can you hear sounds from outside if you listen very carefully? Draw the most interesting sound on a paper. After that, create a list of sounds.


Draw, write, or markdown each sound in post-it notes. Put these little sound notes on the wall or door of your room.

After completing the activity in three mornings, explore the emerging trends. What sound is the most common? Is there a rare sound you heard only once? Continue keeping up your morning sounds notes.
