Can a jar really swallow a balloon? Is there such a thing as weightless water? Who can build the tallest free-standing tower of paper and tape? These are a few of the questions, problems and challenges students will encounter in this packet of activities.
The packet contains 6 teacher-led Dynamo Demos:
*A New "Friend"
*The Hungry Jar
*Boil That Balloon
and 3 student-directed Creative Challenges:
*Wild Blue Yonder
*Towers in the Sky
These activities are designed to teach science process skills--observing, predicting, designing/experimenting, and concluding--and strengthen students' critical thinking skills.
