  2. MyNameIsMasterFrown says:

    i love these! plus my mom was telling me some of these last night so i got them easy! the one thing i dont understand tho is how an echo comes alive with wind someone pls explain that to me

    1. Wordshake says:

      Yes, “comes alive with wind” is just a poetic way to say that wind can amplify an echo. Sound waves travel longer distances with wind than they do in still air, making echos clearer.
