A year 5 interactive display for science topic “sound” including instruments. I tuned the guitar and discovered it’s perfectly playable, and the accoustics in the empty classroom were great.

Seeing this image on Flickr last year inspired my then year 5 teacher to get me to make a version of our own which I then posted to the group.

It included milk bottles with actual water – we were feeling brave. This interactive classroom display stayed up for weeks and no spills!

    An excellent display because it’s interactive. That’s important when it concerns sound. It’s no good having a display which children can only look at when learning about sound – they need to be able to hear it too. Thanks for sharing!

    Love that – very interactive, like the mix of pictures and children’s work and activities too. My eye got drawn to the milk bottle pictures first – looks like the experiment was explained there, which is great. Perhaps the text coudl be a bit bigger though?

    I like how photographs are incorporated into the display!
    Photos tend to generate more student interest in a bulletin board.
    Often bulletin boards display student work/products…… can provide a glimpse of the process that went into the student work and learning.

    Looks like a fun hands-on science center!

    The first display is to my mind too clinical whereas the second one actually looks fun and interesting. The handleable articles invite experiment and don’t look too precious whereas the first display has rather precious looking instruments which don’t invite (allow?) handling. The first display looks like a flowchart and more suitable for young secondary kids.
