We are surrounded by sounds; music, the wind as it moves through objects, the crunching of autumn leaves, the buzzing of a bee. Most times we are too busy to pay attention. But every once in a while a child stops to listen and then we listen too. Just as a seashell holds the sound of the crashing ocean waves so too do these tubes carry sounds of nature to the ears of listening children.
|Joseph and Joshua position the tube between them and lift. Joshua places the tube close to his ear and Joseph makes a sound.|
|Joshua then leaves the tube and moves to the zucchini plant in the garden. He leans close to the zucchini flower and listens for a sound but hears nothing.|
|He retrieves the tube and places in near the zucchini. Perhaps that will help him hear a sound. He listens. "I hear the bees!"|
