Sound effects artists can use ordinary objects to make extraordinary noises that enrich the movie-watching experience. In this riddle, students are asked how they'd create a specific sound effect--that of 100 people marching. Before answering, students go to a clue page where they read about and watch a video clip of two girls' attempts at producing the sound. While selecting from three answer choices on the riddle's final page, students receive brief feedback for any incorrect selections. When students choose the best answer, a short video clip plays of a sound effects artist demonstrating how he makes the marching sound, the sound of horses, and the sound of a door being torn down. The site offers a link to a text-only version of the riddle. Copyright 2005 Eisenhower National Clearinghouse
