So far, you know how to add video and images and you're planning out your next lesson. You want the children to hear a sound and try to identify the sound. Don't worry, Tool Factory Resource Bank has sounds so you can add an extra dimension to your lessons.

Step 1 - Click on the Resource Bank button on the General Toolbar.

Step 2 - Find the sound you want by searching through folders or using the Resource Bank's 'Search' Function.

Step 3 - Left click, hold, and drag the sound you want onto the page. To play the sound click anywhere on the sound icon. When it is playing, blue lines will emit from the microphone icon.

As mentioned before, sound is an excellent way to have children sharpen their senses. For very young audiences a basic lesson would be to compile a document of animal sounds and see if the children know which animals make which sound.
