"I love the ideas and activities in Abigail's Exploring the Science of Sound idea. She has great questions for discussion! "Peggy Ashbrook
Peggy Ashbrook is an early childhood science teacher, mentor and writer--the National Science Teachers Association's (NSTA) Early Years column in Science & Children and companion blog.
"Exploring the Science of Sounds" is a book which has been needed for years. Teachers of young students used to just teach singing with a touch of music history. Today we try to incorporate all of the various aspects of music (language, history, math, science, etc.) into lessons. This book is not just for music teachers: the classroom teacher and science teacher will find it a great addition to their library. ETSOS offers many ways to get the students thinking about sound and how to create sounds on their own. All of the activities are intelligently arranged to enable the teacher to present the lesson quickly and efficiently.

http: //www.midwestbookreview.com/lbw/dec_17.htm#Education Most preschool teachers have musical instruments in their classrooms, but may not realize they can use them for science explorations. Science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM) these explorations are crucial for laying a solid foundation for later learning. Abigail Conners is an Early Childhood Music Specialist throughout the New Jersey area. Her programs include singing, dance, rhythm instrument activities, literacy/music activities, and listening games. In "Exploring the Science of Sounds: 100 Musical Activities for Young Children" she draws upon her experience and expertise to showcase 100 activities that let children ages 3 - 6 explore the science of music and sound using materials easy to find for a preschool classroom. With "Exploring The Science Of Sounds", young children will use their bodies to create sounds, explore the relationship between size and pitch, investigate how tempo affects the way we listen to sounds, create musical instruments, and much more. From the drops of rainwater to the tinkling of wind chimes, the science of sound is all around. Through playful activities children will explore: Acoustics - what is sound?; Volume - loud and soft; Tempo - fast and slow; Timbre - sound quality; Pitch - high and low. Exceptionally well organized and presented, "Exploring The Science Of Sounds" is unreservedly recommended for preschool and elementary school Music Appreciation curriculums, and is a critically important addition to college and academic library Teacher Education instructional reference collections. It should be noted for the personal reading lists that "Exploring The Science Of Sounds" is also available in a digital book format (Kindle, $9.99).Most preschool teachers have musical instruments in their classrooms, but may not realize they can use them for science explorations.
