Air Pressure- To
get a better understanding of air pressure and how it effects our daily
Air Pressure- The
purpose of these demonstrations is to aid the student in learning basic
principles of air pressure.
Air Pressure- The
main objective of the mini-teach is to demonstrate an understanding of
how air pressure works. Students will be able to identify, construct,
and define the concept of air pressure by working in groups after experimenting
with various activities on air pressure.
This lesson will show the relationship between velocity and pressure of
a fluid. The demonstrations should be appropriate for all levels.
Bubbleology Mickey Mouse
Style- After blowing bubbles, students will be able to test the effect
of four different shape wands and three geometric figures in a bubble
mixture. Students will construct water and soap molecules.
Buoyancy: What will
float and what will sink- The students will be able to write and verbally
explain why a particular object/item will sink or float. They will also
be able to illustrate and/or demonstrate this process. This assignment
will either introduce graphing or enhance a students graphing skills,
as well as their critical thinking skills.
Buoyant Force- This
activity was designed for grades 4th thru 8th. Students will be able to
construct a graph that illustrates Archimedes' principle of buoyant force.
Students will also be able to understand that the buoyant force on an
object is equal to the weight of the fluid it displaces.
you take the Pressure? - This lesson introduces students to the concept
of air pressure. Students will explore how air pressure creates force
on an object.
Students will construct a circuit tester. Students will predict what liquids
are electrical conductors.
To understand Boyle's Law. To show that water is a virtually incompressible
Pressure in Fluids-
We shall study the properties of fluids under a variety of circumstances
to understand the role or pressure in their behavior, and to relate to
Sinking And Floating-
The size of the force is equal to the weight of the water displaced. Using
this principle, students would be able to tell why some things sink and
Students will become familiar with surface tension. Students will determine
if soap and heat will affect surface tension.
To understand the concept "Surface Tension", through several experiments.
Designed for students grades 5 through 8.
Students will observe forces between the water molecules which form Surface
Bernoulli Effect: Conceptually- Simply doing and/or observing the
experiments (below) should excite the intellectual curiosity for people
of all ages. Here is a rough guideline for what might be expected.
The Pressure Of A Liquid-
Students will see what happens when the pressure of a liquid is not the
same on all sides of a submerged object.
