Task 3

Alien communication

Each student is given a card with a different type of line on it. Their role is to be an alien greeting another alien by making a sound to match the shape of the line on their card by varying pitch.

This activity is aimed for students in the early years (Pre-primary to year 2) to develop their ability to recognise and explore patterns in data and represent data as pictures, symbols and diagrams (ACTDIK002 – Scootle ).

    I really like this activity, it could be adapted for older high school students to encourage them to consider the impact of changes in amplitude and frequency / wavelength on the types of sounds being represented. Great idea.
