Senses Experiments - Sound Catcher
 
Catch a Sound
Materials you will need:
• Tape or a rubber band
• Newspaper
• Cardboard paper towel tube

 

 
Steps

1.  Smooth the newspaper over one end of the cardboard tube.
          
2.  Tape around the newspaper so that it is tight and flat or wrap a rubber band around the newspaper to hold it in place tightly.
          
3.  Hold the paper towel tube in the middle. Place your fingers of your other hand over the flat end of the newspaper.
          
4.  Sing through the opposite end of the tube opening.

What happens?  Can you feel the vibration on your finger tips that are touching the newspaper?

The sound you make sends vibrations through the air in the tube - making the newspaper shake or vibrate.
