Noisy Planet is pleased to offer a Teacher Toolkit, an easy-to-use online resource to help educators teach children in grades 2 through 6 about the causes and prevention of noise-induced hearing loss. The science-based classroom presentation explains what sound is, how sound travels through the ear, how loud sounds can damage hearing over time, and how to protect your hearing.
The Teacher Toolkit features a downloadable presentation with accompanying talking points to guide you through a 45-minute classroom session. The toolkit also links to handouts for students and families that you can download, print, or order from the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders’ Noisy Planet website.
