Merge science and reading with these sound energy books. You can reinforce important physical science concepts while building kids’ reading skills. It’s a win-win proposition!
Sound Energy Book #1
Sound Waves and Communication by Jenna Winterberg uses text and graphics to teach kids about sound. Concepts include sound waves, how sound is measured, how sound travels, and more. This book is also available in Spanish.
This colorful paperback book can take the place of a textbook. For a creative alternative, buy only one copy. Then cut it apart and create a bulletin board. That way, kids can learn while moving around the room.
Sound Energy Book #2
The second sound energy book, How Does Sound Change? by Robin Johnson, includes information about vibrations, waves, volume, pitch, how sound travels and bounces. At then end of the book, you’ll find some projects for kids.
Sound Energy Book #3
The Whispering Lake Ghosts by Lynda Beauregard will really engage bigger kids! Written as a graphic novel, the mystery is solved through more sophisticated concepts. Students learn that sound travels differently through different media (solids, liquids, and gases). Additionally, they explore how megaphones can amplify sound, as well as echos.
