Noisy Planet’s latest teaching tool is a big hit with students! Our animated Journey of Sound to the Brain video premiered during a Noisy Planet presentation at Westbrook Elementary School, in Bethesda, Maryland, to a group of engaged fourth graders. After students acted out the sequence of events involved in hearing, they attentively watched the animated version of what they just acted out. The students laughed and danced in their seats to the sounds of the trumpet and other instruments, reporting that they liked the video and learned from it.

The video is part of our popular Teacher Toolkit. If you're in the Washington, D.C., metro area and are interested in having the Noisy Planet team present at your school, camp, or aftercare group, email us!
