I Love What I Hear! Video

Do you see the video below? If not, you need to get QuickTime. QuickTime is free and easy to install.

This 7 min., 25 sec. video, developed for elementary-aged students, describes how common sounds in our environment—when too loud, too close, or too long-lasting—can put us at risk for permanent hearing loss. It also teaches students how they can protect their hearing against noise-induced hearing loss by becoming "ear defenders."

If you are experiencing playback difficulties due to a slow connection, or If you want to watch the video without being connected to the Internet, you can download the video to your computer.
