Product Description
Engaging and hands-on, but uses very uncomplicated supplies! You need balloons and cold water - that's it! Use this quick activity to teach about thermal expansion and particle motion. The activity paper instructs students to change the temperature of a balloon and measure the contraction or expansion that results. We often use this as a station with this Bimetallic Strip Activity and our Clicking Coins Activity.

Teaching particle motion? Check out our Make a Model: Hand Boiler Activity.

Teaching heat? We highly recommend this Insulator Design and Build Challenge take home project!

And check out our best-selling Heat Test and our Heat Quiz.
