Pitch: Water Trombone (Document)
KENNY: Krystle Z. of Niles, Michigan, sent us directions to make a trombone, using a straw and some water. Okay, all you have to do is stick one end of the straw into the water and blow across the other end like this. (whistling sliding notes) When you stick the straw into the water deeper it makes the tone changes. (whistling ascending note) That's because sound is made of vibrations and when you blow across the top of the straw the air inside vibrates and makes a sound. So this must mean the air is vibrating differently. (tone sliding upward) (tone sliding downward) (tone sliding up and down)
Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
