Tissue Box Guitar ActivityTask: Students will measure the different vibrations of sound by using a tissue guitar box.Materials:- Empty Kleenex/tissue box (enough for each group)-Rubber bands of different sizes and widths (enough for each group)-optional: Markers, stickers, and etc to decorate the tissue boxProcedure:Preparation—The teacher should create the tissue box guitars prior to the activity. He/She will create several tissue box guitars by using different size rubber bands.1. The tissue box should contain three of the same size rubber bands. 2. Students will be divided up into small group.3. Each group will receive several tissue box guitars.4. Students will gently pull the rubber bands on the tissue box guitars and let it go. 5.Students will then determine the guitars that make a soft, and loud sound.a. When the rubber band vibrates faster this a high pitch.b. When the rubber band vibrates slower this a low pitch.Closing Questions:The teacher will ask students the following questions at the end of the activity. What happened when you gently pulled the rubber band on the box guitar and let it go? Possible Answer: Students may say that the rubber band made a noise and moved. What did you hear when the rubber band was pulled and let go? Possible Answer: a twang or noise Was the sound different when the rubber band was pulled tighter? Possible Answer: The rubber band vibrated faster and sounded different (higher pitched).What did you see when you looked at the rubber band as it was making a noise? Possible Answer: The rubber band moved back and forth really fast. We call this kind of fast motion a vibration. How many of you have heard of that word before? Answers will vary.
