Now that I have your attention…..
I found this site: http://www.naturesoundmap.com/
with sounds of nature from all around the world.
-when students enter your room to get their attention
-as the background for student quiet time for reading
-as a writing prompt
-to have students identify what is happening in the sound recording
-to have students identify where it is happening
-during basic when you want students to be quiet and relaxed instead of noisy
-give them the assignment to find other nature sounds you could use
-at club time
-students can draw or create something that goes with the sounds
-in a presentation as your background music
-in a podcast and have students narrate what is happening
-in a video to accompany images of the nature sound
-when students are reading or working on a project
-to create some “relaxation” time in your classroom
