Sisilia Echolocation

Did you know that Animals and Evan humans who are blind uses Echolocation?
Echolocation is like sound waves bouncing back to you from an object. Bats use Echolocation to hunt down the flying objects like a bird. Bats are not blind but they are very good listeners. Different animals can use echolocation even humans. Some humans who are blind can also use echolocation to tell where they're going and where things are.

Ben Underwood was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 2 then he had is eyes removed at the age of three. Daniel Kish taught Ben at the age of five echolocation. He detects objects by making clicking sounds with his tongue. he even uses echolocation while he is outside playing. He plays different kind of sports outside like rollerblading , Basketball with his brother and even riding a bicycle. Echolocation helps Ben even to play games on his device. Ben just moved to his new house and he used echolocation around his new house.

Bats have big hears and they are really excellent listeners. Bats use echolocation to find there objects flying from afar. Bat also use there eyes to see where the object is but they mainly use there ears to hear them so that the bats can hunt them down. echolocation is like when bats squeal the sound goes and bounces back to it. So its like sound waves going out and it hits a object and it comes back to the bats. Thats when bats know where they are.

So Ben uses echolocation to find his way around the house. So when he walks around the house he does clicking noises with his tongue so that the sound wave goes and then the sound can bounce back to him just like bats. They use there big ears to detect where is the flying object moving. So some humans can use echolocation if their blind. Even swimming object can use echolocation  under water.
