    in this activity, a class or group of students create several soundscapes to gain a greater appreciation of how background sound differs from one geographical setting to another.

    By the end of this activity, students should be able to:

    • understand that background sound differs from one geographical setting to another
    • understand that each area of coastline will have its own particular ‘sound signature’
    • be able to explain that sound could therefore be used as a navigational cue, for example, for crab larvae to find their way to the reef.
