Grade I and II - Making String Telephone :- Through this activity children learnt how the sound waves travel. They got the information that sound waves are created when sounds make vibrations in the air. In this activity the voice vibrates in the air inside the cup. Then it is transferred to the bottom of the cup. The bottom of the cup passes the sound waves to the string and so on to the other cup. The learners were very happy with this fun and learn activity.
