I like how this article incorporated the Next Generation Science Standards core ideas into the science/engineering project.The article explains the step by step process teachers should take with their students. The students are engaged in the activity because they are first asked to describe their one experiences with weather before beginning the activity. The activity is great because it is an activity that the teacher can do with the students in a week not just one day. As the days go by the students get more engaged and motivated to complete the activity. I can't wait to be able to do this with my students!

This article is packed with lots of ideas on how to teach about sound vibrations. The students learn about how sounds are created and transmitted and how the sound can change depending on the position of the instrument. I think this a great activity to do with students because not only do they get to hear the different pitches instruments make but they can also feel the different vibrations instruments can make. Students always learn more when it is a hands on activity vs. just reading about a topic.
