Step 1: Explore “How to Make a Sound Map” website. What is the purpose of the maps? How are they created? What similarities and differences do you see?
Step 2: In small groups, explore the sounds in different areas of the school building. Take a small recording device and record a 30 second clip of that area.
Step 3: As a class, listen to each sound clip. Try to guess where in the school that clip was from. Discuss why and how those sounds influence each area.
Step 4: In small groups, create individual sound maps of their assigned areas, based on the work from the How to Make a Sound Map website.
