Description:

In this activity (on pages 25-32 of PDF), learners make models of the inner ear out of pipe cleaners. They learn about how tiny hairs pick up vibrations from our ear, and how damage to these hairs results in permanent hearing loss. The lesson plan includes images of actual ear cilia, both healthy and damaged. There is also information about the three effective ways to prevent hearing loss: turn it down, move away, or protect your ears.
