Sounds of Nature IN Your Classroom

Have you ever used sound effects in your classroom? There are so many different sites you can use to locate specific sounds to enhance a lesson. Below are two fantastic examples. One from and the other is of course from the DiscoveryEducation media library.
Use these sounds:
-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
SAMPLE: I found that clicking on the “More info” link plays better than the LISTEN button.

Don’t forget that Discovery has over 3000 sounds in their library as well. Here is a sample of a loon:
