Great way to visually show noise in your classroom (or home).

The other day I came across Richard Byrne's post about a site known as Bouncy Balls (shows the volume of noise in your classroom). As you can see in the embedded picture, GIF, and video (you will hear my daughter's voice) you can set the Bounciness, total number of items, as well as what MODE you would like (colorful plastic balls, Emojis, Bubble, or Eyeballs).

The microphone does need to be enabled (FYI when I tried using it in Safari it stated that I needed to use Google Chrome).

This would be good for showing appropriate noise levels in your classroom and give a nice visual for them to see. Plus, it is just kind of fun! 







As always, any questions please let me know!
