Directions: Fit each end of the plastic tubing in one of the funnels and tape in
place. Have one child hold a funnel to their ear while another child
talks in. the other funnel. How does sound get from one funnel to

Adaptations: Make individual phones with paper cups, string, and paper clips. Poke holes it! the bottom of two cups and thread the string through the holes. Tie a paper clip to the ends of the string to keep them in the bottom of the cup. Let children take turns speaking and listening with the "cup phones."
