Description

This lesson package on The Properties of Air and its relation to Flight starts with an overview of the main characteristics of flight including weight, its place in space, movement, and atmospheric pressure. It then looks at how moving air creates lift for flight, why we need air as well as some applications for the properties of air.

The package contains diagrams, examples, and explanations. It includes the lesson (student and teacher versions of the presentation), an inquiry activity, 5 embedded videos, and a student lesson handout as a word document that follows the lesson. Additionally, each resource comes as a Google document or slide which has already been formatted and is ready to upload to your Drive with a single click.

In order, the lesson covers:

  • Characteristics of air
  • Air has weight
  • Air takes up space
  • Warm Air Rises and Cool Air Falls
  • Atmospheric Pressure and whether
  • Moving air creates lift
  • Why do we need air?
  • Application for the Properties of Air

Included in the lesson package is:

  • Google and Office versions of each resource
  • The teacher version of the presentation
  • The student version of the presentation
  • A collaborative challenge activity
  • 5 videos embedded into the presentation

Buyer Comments:

  • "I broke this down into two parts. I also made clozed notes where I had all sentences in the notes and only bold/underlined certain words for students to write down. We also did the demonstrations in class for the in person group but the videos of the demos was perfect for the students at home!
  • "I used the PP during our synchronous time via Zoom. Students liked the embedded videos and were engaged."
  • "Made my last lesson in flight a lot easier"
  • "Great Resource! Thank You!"

--------------------------------------------

This lesson includes both Office and Google formats for ALL resources. The presentation is in PowerPoint and Google Slides while all documents contain Word and Google Doc versions.

  • Your resource is perfect for distance learning and integrates seamlessly with Google Classroom as I've included a link that will automatically create a copy of the resources and put them directly into your Google Drive with one click.
  • Purchase --> Open --> Click --> Assign to your students

Having both options allows you to use either without worrying about formatting issues as all the work has already been done for you. It safeguards you in case your department or school decides to go Google 100% and allows you as well as your students to access everything no matter where you are or what kind of equipment is being used.

--------------------------------------------

The student version of the presentation contains multiple blanks that need to be filled in throughout the lesson. These blanks are conveniently underlined and bolded on the teacher copy. I have found this to be the most effective means of keeping my students engaged and active without having them write everything out. This also leaves more time for discussion and activities.

Within my complete Flight Unit you can find the following lesson packages:

Lesson 1 - The History and Future of Flight

Lesson 2 - How Planes and Other Aircraft Fly

Lesson 3 - Improving Flight

Lesson 4 - How Living Things Fly

Lesson 5 - The Properties of Air

Lesson 6 - The Environmental and Social Effects of Airlines

Standards

NGSSMS-ESS2-5
Collect data to provide evidence for how the motions and complex interactions of air masses result in changes in weather conditions. Emphasis is on how air masses flow from regions of high pressure to low pressure, causing weather (defined by temperature, pressure, humidity, precipitation, and wind) at a fixed location to change over time, and how sudden changes in weather can result when different air masses collide. Emphasis is on how weather can be predicted within probabilistic ranges. Examples of data can be provided to students (such as weather maps, diagrams, and visualizations) or obtained through laboratory experiments (such as with condensation). Assessment does not include recalling the names of cloud types or weather symbols used on weather maps or the reported diagrams from weather stations.
NGSSMS-LS4-4
Construct an explanation based on evidence that describes how genetic variations of traits in a population increase some individuals’ probability of surviving and reproducing in a specific environment. Emphasis is on using simple probability statements and proportional reasoning to construct explanations.
NGSSMS-PS2-2
Plan an investigation to provide evidence that the change in an object’s motion depends on the sum of the forces on the object and the mass of the object. Emphasis is on balanced (Newton’s First Law) and unbalanced forces in a system, qualitative comparisons of forces, mass and changes in motion (Newton’s Second Law), frame of reference, and specification of units. Assessment is limited to forces and changes in motion in one-dimension in an inertial reference frame, and to change in one variable at a time. Assessment does not include the use of trigonometry.
