Chemistry: Egg Sucking Experiment

For Teachers 4th - 5th
Students discover simple gas laws by observing an egg sucked into an Erlenmeyer flask. When the flask is warmed, the egg is placed atop it. when both are placed in ice water, the egg slips into the flask. The procedure is then reversed....
Lesson Planet

Planetary Weather

For Teachers 6th - 8th
Students are asked what do they recall about weather. They reasearch weather on the other planets of the solar system. Students work in groups and each group is assigned two planets. They create a display showing the weather on each...

Causal Patterns in Air Pressure Phenomena

For Teachers Higher Ed
Students consider the relationship between pressure and temperature. They observe a demonstration and explore the relationship between heat and volume when pressure remains constant. Students discuss relational causality and consider...
Lesson Planet

Can or Bottle Crusher (Demonstration)

For Teachers 4th - 12th
Students witness the gas law from a demonstration in which a can collapses after the steam escapes. The steam pushes out most of the air from inside the can and then the air outside presses against the can crushing it.
Lesson Planet

Oxygen vs. Air Pressure

For Teachers 8th - 9th
Students conduct an experiment to determine if water level is affected by a change in oxygen level or air pressure.
Lesson Planet

Air Pressure

For Teachers 4th
Fourth graders observe a demonstration experiment showing air pressure. They explain air pressure by completing the worksheet.
Lesson Planet

The Pressure's Off

For Teachers 3rd - 6th
Students investigate air pressure with four hands-on activities. They observe experiments by viewing Take a Look 2 #21.
Lesson Planet

Physical Characteristics of the Troposphere

For Teachers 8th - 10th
Young scholars examine troposphere graphs and mcompare their hypotheses with data collected by weather balloons launched from the NOAA ship, Ronald H. Brown. they write summaries about the physical properties of the troposphere.
Lesson Planet

The Big Crush

For Teachers 6th - 8th
Students examine weather maps from their state from the past few days. They examine the Highs and Lows on the maps to determine what kind of weather they produce. They use that information to better prepare for their activities and what...
Lesson Planet

A Proper Propeller

For Teachers 4th - 6th
Students create an airplane propeller using a plastic top from a margarine bowl, nail and wooden rod. They explore the action of an airplane propeller.
Lesson Planet

What's The Weather?

For Teachers 3rd - 5th
Students examine the components of weather, temperature, air pressure, moisture content, and wind velocity. Their observations are recorded, summarized, and charted. The effects of weather changes on their lives, homes, clothing, and...
Lesson Planet

Causal Patterns in Air Pressure Phenomena

For Teachers Higher Ed
Students examine why air pressure is hard to notice. They observe the height of a liquid in a tube over time and lift a table with balloons.
Lesson Planet

Section 1: Non-obvious Causes

For Teachers Higher Ed
Students explore the historical problem of pumping water out of mines.
Lesson Planet

Passive Causal Agents and the Omnidirectional Nature of Air Pressure

For Teachers Higher Ed
Students study passive causal agents, such as air pressure, in a system. They conceptualize air pressure as passive and omnidirectional, with molecules that make up the air bouncing off surfaces with which they have contact in all...
Lesson Planet

Air Pressure Demonstration

For Teachers 8th
Eighth graders observe various physics experiments. They study kinetic theory and how a hovercraft works.
Lesson Planet

Let's Weigh Air

For Teachers 9th - 12th
High schoolers participate in an experiment to measure the weight of air by measuring the weight of the mass it displaces. They lift up a desk and a textbook using a toilet plunger, and calculate the weight of the air, or air pressure.
Lesson Planet

Pushy Air

For Teachers 3rd - 4th
Students engage in a lesson which give them a good understanding of air and some of its properties. They perform an eye-opening experiment which demonstrates how powerful air pressure is, then answer questions on a worksheet imbedded in...
Lesson Planet

Eggsperiment

For Teachers 3rd - 4th
Students observe an experiment that examines changes in air pressure. They investigate what causes an egg to be squeezed into and out of a bottle.
Lesson Planet

How's the Air Up There?

For Teachers 6th - 8th
Students experiment with soda cans and water to discover why air pressure is greater closer to Earth's surface.
Lesson Planet

Bicycle Pump Pressure

For Teachers 3rd - 12th
Students explain that air pressure applies a force. If any of students have flown in an airplane, they have felt the "popping" of their ears caused by the change in atmospheric pressure because of the altitude changes.
Lesson Planet

Experiment: Faster Air = Lower Air Pressure 2

For Teachers 4th - 5th
Students experiment to observe air current and pressure.
Lesson Planet

Air Pressure

For Teachers 4th - 8th
Students watch a demonstration on air pressure, discuss it, and do a worksheet to reinforce it.
