Students can take our How Does Noise Damage Your Hearing? Kahoot! quiz at home or in the classroom to learn about noise-induced hearing loss. The quiz educates children on the fundamental biological processes of hearing; the signs, symptoms, and causes of noise-induced hearing loss; and ways to protect their hearing from loud noises.

The quiz is designed to reinforce healthy hearing messages and can be used to test knowledge from classroom activities available through our Teacher Toolkit. The toolkit provides easy-to-use resources and step-by-step instructions for fun activities for teachers, school nurses, and other educators nationwide.
