Bee Hummer


  • No Comments

Contributed By


In this activity, students learn about sound and vibration by making a "bee hummer"--a toy that sounds like a swarm of buzzing bees when you spin it around. The activity includes three short online videos: Introduction, Step-by-Step Instructions, and What's Going On. Also available: a concept map and a "Going Further" document that suggests variations on this activity.
