Introduce air and water pressure with teacher demonstrations
and a variety of great student activities
. Pour air up, try out Bernoulli’s Principle, and create boats using sheets of foil. What’s the best way to fold the foil to support the most large paper clips before the foil sinks in a tub of water? These fun activities can be shared with families or a partner class if you're teaching younger students.
I recorded a video
to give you an overview of the lessons - it's like I'm sitting next to you explaining your options. I also created simple videos
you can use to preview or review activities. Choose from two short student texts
that are saved with three reading levels in English
and two in Spanish
. The texts have also been recorded
for students who benefit from listening to the information.
A variety of assessments
including performance assessments are included with answer keys or samples of our completed assessments.
The activities use materials* that you can collect locally.
This lesson supports NGSS 3-PS2-1♦.
It’s part of a series about physics units including: forces
, pushes and pulls
, this product, magnetism
, and static electricity
. You might add this resource to your options for teaching WEATHER
