Family Auditory Processing VAK Activity:
Sit in the back yard or front yard and listen to the sounds you hear. Write them down. How many sounds have you heard? Compare with each other the sounds everyone has heard. Then you can even categorize the sounds. Then go to another place: the park, river, soccer field, church, school yard, or mall and do the same. Compare and contrast the sounds in the different places.
