What is echolocation? Ben Underwood was blind but he uses echolocation to help him find his way around. Echolocation is when you make a sound like clapping or making a clicking sound with your mouth. When he makes that sound he hears a little echo reflecting of the wall. Ben hears sound reflecting off something, then he knows that something is there.

When bats go out hunting at night, they also use echolocation to hunt down their food. Bats makes sounds to see if food is around them. Bats use their nose and mouth to make sounds. If the bat hears their echo coming back that means someone or something is nearby.

Dolphins also use echolocation to see people and find their food. Echolocation is very cool and interesting. Here are some links below that can help you understand what echolocation is.
