Teaching about air or air pressure? Let students experience the power of air for themselves!
This printable, reproducible lab pack consists of a lab worksheet and four labs that may be set up as rotating stations. The included labs may be used to engage students and introduce air pressure, or as practice and application after air pressure has been introduced.
Students will need approximately 6-8 minutes per station, although some stations take longer than others.
Objective: Students will be able to use air pressure to explain otherwise strange occurrences.
