Mrs. Bowman hears sounds

This picture is of our lovely assistant principal whom we all know and love, Mrs. Bowman! You don’t get it? Let me set the scene. I was walking down the hall thinking of what my history teacher made us do that day: a science experiment. Yes you read that right, we did science in history! (yeah history unbelievable am I right?) Since when does that happen? I’m getting off topic here, but then I saw something that stopped me in my tracks: it was Mrs. Bowman out in the hallway with Mr. Dickason doing the same experiment that all of his other classes did that same day! What I saw was something that I never ever thought that I would ever see in my life: a principle crouched down doing the same thing that our class did! The point of the experiment is to show how you can hear sound louder. If you know third grade science (which you should, or how else would be here?) you know that the molecules are closer together causing the sound to travel faster rather than gas or water whose molecules are less compacted. If you want to recreate this experiment the materials used were things that you probably have at home it’s just a metal hanger and string, you just tie the string to the hanger, then wrap the string twice around your two index fingers and hold it to your ears, now this may sound odd but you lightly tap the hanger to the wall. If you want to hear the difference, tap with just your finger or the hanger but without the string to your ear. It’s actually pretty fun to do but that’s just my opinion. I thought it was nice that the principal would do the same things as us and so I have to admit it’s a pretty cool experiment to do while your bored. Well that’s all folks until next time on the teacher feature.
