Listening Walk

This is a fun and simple activity to introduce students to the world of sound by getting them to observe the world around them as they think about the different sounds they can hear and where they’re coming from.

Tell the students that they are going to go outside and see how many different things they can hear. Walk around your outdoor space, getting them to draw / write what they can hear on the sheet. Once they have finished, the older ones can complete the question sheet.

For younger students you can simply ask these questions throughout the activity to stimulate thought.
