Setting the scene
Introduce the activity: “Today we’re going to ask ourselves questions about high- and low- pitched sounds so that we can get better at recognizing the differences between them.”
“What’s the difference between the two voices we heard?”
“Was the note low or high?”
Ask the children: “Is the second sound at a higher pitch or a lower pitch than the first?”
Tell a story and ask the children to invent the voice of each character by choosing a high- or low-pitched voice.
Play the first game in The World of Squirrels with the children.
