Fact Sheet on Ears
Fun Facts on Ears for kids

Fun Fact 1

Your ears perform two main tasks, they collect and process sounds so that we can hear and they help us to keep our balance

Fun Fact 2

How do we hear? Sounds travel into our ears and hit the eardrum; the movements (called vibrations) are picked up by the cochlea and sent to the brain

Fun Fact 3

Three different parts make up the ear: the outer ear, the middle ear and the inner ear

Fun Fact 4

The outer ear is called the pinna or auricle; this is the part of the ear that we can see. The outer ear's job is to collect sounds and channel them through the ear canal towards the middle ear

Fun Fact 5

The ear canals are where earwax is produced. Earwax is very important as it protects the ears from dirt and infection; without earwax our hearing could suffer permanent damage

Fun Fact 6

The middle ears job is to convert sound waves, collected by the outer ears, into vibrations and deliver them to the inner ears. This is done by bouncing the sound waves over a thin, tightly stretched piece of skin called the eardrum

Fun Fact 7

The three smallest, most delicate bones in your body rest against the ear drum in the middle ears; they are called the ossicles

Fun Fact 8

The ossicles consists of three tiny bones; malleus, incus and stapes. The malleus, which means "hammer" in Latin, is attached to the eardrum. The Incus, means "anvil" in Latin, it is attached to the malleus, and the stapes, which means "stirrup" in Latin, is attached to the incus

Fun Fact 9

The eardrum vibrates with the impact of sound waves; the ossicles send the vibrations towards the inner ear

Fun Fact 10

The inner ears direct the vibrations into a small, curled tube called the cochlea. The cochlea is full of tiny hairs which convert the vibrations into nerve signals which are sent to the brain. The brain receives the nerve messages and translates them into sounds

Fun Fact 11

Why do my ears 'pop' on an aeroplane? Your eardrums are affected by the air pressure as the aeroplane moves through the atmosphere. Our Eustachian tubes are connected to our ear drums and the pressure causes our Eustachian tubes to not regulate the pressure correctly and form a pocket of air. Ear pressure can be uncomfortable and sometimes painful; sucking a sweet, chewing and yawning often helps

Fun Fact 12

Your ears help you to keep your balance! Your ears contain a liquid which help yours your brain to know if you are moving. If you spin around very fast the liquid takes a while to settle down, this is why we can sometimes feel a little dizzy

Fun Fact 13

The smallest bone in the entire human body is situated in the middle ear; the stapes bone (also known as stirrup) measures just 2.8 mm long

Fun Fact 14

Your ears are very precious and you must take care of them! Never insert anything into your ears and if the sound environment is too loud remember to protect them by wearing earplugs. If you wear headphones to listen to music, play video games or watch television, keep the volume down!

Fun Fact 15

Teenage hearing loss is on the increase! Teenager hearing problems has increased by almost 30% in recent years; this is probably due to the increase of gaming, mobile phones and computer use. Look after your ears and keep the volume down!
