A voice chart that’s labeled “How Loud Am I?”, with 0-4 decibel levels

This diagram was created to represent my influence as an older student in the school for good! This will help the 3rd-5th graders regulate their voice levels in the hallway so as not to disrupt the learning. It is colorful with fun commentary! Enjoy!

This is an adaptation of a voice level chart that students use at the Boggs School to manage the loudness of their voice. The original chart has a range from 0 to 4 with description included. Students explored voice level and the connection to air quality by attempting to incorporate decibels (dB) and droplet spread, with or without masks. This exploration allowed students to share what they learned about contributing to clear air in a pandemic in a non-threatening way. I hope you find it helpful!
