Sounds are everywhere! For this activity, all you need to do is go outside and LISTEN!
Find a spot to stand and then close your eyes. Count how many sounds you can hear in 5 seconds. Were any of these sounds from nature? Were any made by people?
Now it’s time to go on a walk and hear what’s out there! As you walk, stop every few minutes for a sound count. Instead of closing your eyes, though, keep your eyes open and look at someone else who is counting sounds. Every time you hear a sound, hold up one finger. Do you hear the same sounds as your listening partner? Do you hear them at the same time?
After you’ve listened for a little while, you can keep walking and talk about some of the sounds that you’ve heard.
