Sounds of machines

Learning goals: Machine sounds at home and in the immediate surroundings, observing and recognizing sounds of machines, combining movement to a sound

What machine sounds can the Shy Ant hear in his new home? What about you? Find all the machines at your home and listen to their sounds.

What kind of movements can you make according to each sound (e.g. washing machine = rolling/somersaults, an air conditioner = running, a fridge = shaking)?

Listen to the audiotapes below. Can you recognise the sounds?
