Sid the Science Kid

Too Much Noise

Sid notices that when he covers his ears with his hands, everything sounds quieter. Maybe he has super powers! Sid explores his sense of hearing, and discovers that sounds travel through the air and into our ears. So it turns out Sid doesn't have super powers, he was just blocking sound waves from entering his ears!
