Grade: 3 - Physical Science 4

3.PS.4
Investigate and recognize properties of sound that include pitch, loudness (amplitude), and vibration as determined by the physical properties of the object making the sound.

I Can Statements Academic Vocabulary
I can investigate the properties of sound such as pitch, loudness, and vibration.

I can use the physical properties of objects making sounds to identify pitch, loudness, and vibration.

Looking Back Looking Ahead
Plan and conduct investigations to provide evidence that vibrating materials can make sound and that sound can make materials vibrate. (1.PS.3) Make observations to provide evidence that energy can be transferred from place to place by sound, light, heat, and electric currents. (4.PS.5)
