Week 8 (11-14-16) How Well Do We Distinguish Each Other’s Voices?

Well. Let me start with the conclusion: Every kid’s voice sounds about the same. And every teacher’s voice does, too. The end.

But here’s how we know.

We listened to a voice recording (caught two weeks earlier on my phone) of each person saying “Happy Thanksgiving.”

And then we listened to each recording again.

And then again.

And then six more times. Or maybe it was eight.

And then we just shook our heads and guessed.

Some of us didn’t even know which voice was ours. Or our kid’s. It was all so wild that it would be this tricky.


And then in other news, we graphed again.


Here we are recording the number of people who guessed each Christmas cookie cutter correctly last week.


Totally easy now.


No one’s turning pale when we say “bar graph.”


They’ve got this.


So here they are…


Recording their data…


And doing their best to make it as neat as possible.


We had two graphs to finish, one was intended for homework…


But we blazed through it all today…


Which means that we’ve studied each of our senses…


Sight, smell, touch, taste, and hearing!


One last picture of today’s scientists.

    This was so funny! I thought I’d ace this one and boy was I humbled. I wasn’t even sure about my own voice!!!
    Love it! Lisa
