Take me out to hear sounds and music in the wider world

Little Soundabout: Level 2 | Card: 3 | Category: Reactive

Think how different places have different sounds and music associated with them

  • Visit shopping centres, and spend some time in different shops: each will have its own music and lighting and smell – ready-made multi-sensory environments! – but be careful I don’t get overwhelmed
  • See if I enjoy being out in the countryside, or on a children’s farm – let me soak up the sounds and sights and smells of nature
  • Take me to see churches, temples, mosques and synagogues and, if possible, experience the rituals associated with different traditions of worship, which can be rich multisensory events
  • If you can, take me to the seaside, to hear the sound of the waves and feel the breeze on my face and smell of seaweed on the beach
  • Record the sounds that I hear in the world around so I can re-live them when I get home
