Identifying different sounds in Sound – Class 8 Science Experiment

Chapter Name: Sound

Activity Name: Identifying different sounds in Sound

Activity Description:

In this experiment, students will explore their ability to identify different sounds and guess their sources without visually seeing them.

Required Items:

Blackboard, chalk, table for tabulating sounds and sources.

Step by Step Procedure:

  1. Choose one student to stand facing the blackboard, away from the rest of the class.
  2. Provide the student at the blackboard with a table (Table-2) to record their observations.
  3. Instruct other students in the class to take turns making various sounds one by one. The sounds can be anything from clapping, snapping fingers, whistling, tapping a pencil, rustling paper, etc.
  4. The student at the blackboard should carefully listen to each sound and note down their observations in the table. They should record the sound they heard in one column and make a guess about the source of that sound in another column.
  5. Repeat the process until each student has had a chance to make a sound.

Experiment Observations:

The student at the blackboard will observe various sounds made by their classmates and try to guess the sources of those sounds.

Note down your observations in table format:


  1. Ensure that the sounds created are safe and not too loud or disturbing.
  2. The student at the blackboard should not peek or turn around while making their guesses.

Lesson Learnt from Experiment:

Through this experiment, students will realize that our sense of hearing plays a crucial role in identifying different sounds and their sources. By focusing solely on the auditory cues, our brains can associate specific sounds with familiar objects or actions, even without the visual input.
