Senses Experiment: Do You Hear What I Hear?

(Experimento: ¿Escuchas lo que yo escucho?)

How many sounds you can recognize.

  • A friend or two
  • A blindfold
  • Stuff to make noise (coins to jingle in a jar, a book to close, hands to clap, paper to crumble, paper to rip, bubblegum to crack or pop, a ball to bounce, and supplies for any other sounds you want to make)

  1. Blindfold your friend.
  2. Make each noise.
  3. Ask your friend to guess what the noise is. How many did your friend guess right?
