This is a nice article with several easy to do sound experiments that the author has set up as stations for students to explore. Several of the experiments are classics, but a couple were new to me such as the one involving sound traveling along a small slinky. The is a great article for beginning teachers!!

This is a good list of activities that can be used as stations to teach students about the basic concepts of sound. The activities are not new but the approach where students rotate in stations is a great way to address all these activities in terms of materials and time. All is provided including teacher setup. This is a great resource for all teachers and especially new teachers.
