Bells In School
If you are a teacher or school administrator, and want to enrich the learning experience of your students with a visit to the world as told by itís bells, please contact us. Starting in September, representatives of Friends of the Norwich Bells will be available to bring the fun and the importance of bells and bell ringing to your classroom. For grades K through 12, we will happily create up to an hour of learning tailored to your curriculum. Younger children can make bells as a project, tell stories and ask questions about them. Middle and high school students may benefit from hearing about bells as a form of communication, and the roll theyíve played in society, culture, and religion, from the beginning of the industrial revolution until the advent of digital clocks. Or, your music class might be excited to learn that, bells rarely ring out one note. Tonality, resonance and harmonics play a crucial roll in how a bell is cast, what itís made of and where itís used. From the study of bells, we can learn much about language, history, and social values. They can even tell us about the weather.
Remember to consult the calendar section of this page regularly for information on get-togethers and other events!
