Remember the xylophone? Greg Vogt, EdD, demonstrates how to build and play a similar instrument, called a metallophone, and explains how other metal objects can be used to investigate the properties of sound. Each activity in this slide set may be used to present a class demonstration, set up as a sound station in the classroom, or conducted as a hands-on lesson student teams. Adjust quantities as needed.
