Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Descartes' Diver

Pique interest in water pressure, demonstrate buoyancy, and explore water displacement concepts with a homemade Cartesian diver. You may want to change the name of the toy, however, as is is not documented the Rene Descartes actually...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### How is Flowing Water an Energy Source? Activity B

Explore the world's water without leaving the classroom! In this second of three uncomplicated but wonderful activities, physical science learners feel the pressure of water. They discover that the deeper the water, the stronger the...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Exploring Pressure

Begin by discussing pressure and showing a video clip of James Cameron's record-setting deep-sea dive. Then assign lab groups to explore how depth affects pressure and to construct a manometer. There is another video to follow the...

#### The Science of a Historic Sinking

Incorporate science investigations to expand pupils' understanding of the Titanic.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Floating Fishes: How do Fishes Control Buoyancy?

Playing with balloons, water, oil, and bottles help put this lesson over the top! Participants use air-filled balloons in water tanks to experience gas compression. They also use oil-filled bottles to experiment with buoyancy. Included...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### If Your Hands Could Smell, You’d Be an Octopus

An octopus' tentacles are more like sticky, multipurpose tools than the simple leg-like appendages we view them as. Discover their amazing abilities, times eight, in an entertaining video. The narrator explains the senses located in each...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### A Matter of Density

Larvae transportation on the New England seamounts is based on the density of the water. Scholars calculate density and graph salinity versus temperature to better understand the distribution of organisms in a water column. Discussions...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Scuba Training

How does a scuba diver control whether they sink or float? Scholars observe the relationship between absolute pressure and depth below the surface in an undersea simulation. They control the diver size and depth to center of mass to see...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Down to the Deep Virtual Lab

At a depth of 3,000 m in the ocean, the pressure is 300 times that at sea level! In the activity, individuals predict what will happen to Styrofoam cups submerged 3,000 meters into the ocean. They then convert these units to soccer...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Tippy Tap Plus Piping

Getting water to a tap requires an understanding the fundamentals of fluid flow. Groups design, build, and test a piping system to get water from the source — a five gallon bucket — to a tippy tap. The objective is to be able to fill...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### The Effects of Underwater Pressure on the Body

Exactly what causes the the pain you feel when diving to the deep end of a pool? Find out with this short video that explores the physical laws governing the behavior of gases and the ways they affect marine life and scuba divers that...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Water Pressure Blaster

Third graders complete an experiment to introduce them to the concept of water pressure. In this water pressure lesson plan, 3rd graders create pressure in a water bottle and observe the force of water that is created.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### I Just Drank George Washington's Water!

Guide your learners through the water cycle with this lesson plan. Over the course of the lesson, they read two Magic School Bus books, discuss the water cycle, come up with water facts, complete a diagram of the water cycle, recognize...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Perpetual Flow Activity

Set up a demonstration of how gravity can drive the perpetual flow of water during your hydro power unit. Science learners work in teams to make observations and formulate questions about how it works. They compare the model to what they...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Water Pressure in the Ocean

Students compare the pressure of water at different depths and gain an understanding of how increased water might affect animals living in deeper waters. They participate in an experiment to show that depth, not volume, affects water...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Water to the Max

Students experiment with the angle that yields the greatest distance of water at constant pressure. In this experiment with the angle that yields the greatest distance of water at constant pressure instructional activity, students shoot...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Ups and Downs of Diving

Students explore the science and sport of scuba diving. In this scuba diving activity, students build Cartesian divers and observe their behavior under water pressure.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Non-Compressibility of Water

Students will observe a property of water. In this inquiry-based properties of air lesson, students observe how a change in water pressure impacts the positioning of an eye-dropper in the water container and they make hypotheses about...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Rocket Angles

Eighth graders create rockets that be launched at varying angles to determine which angle is best to launch at for the longest distance.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Burn, Baby Burn (Or Not)

Physics learners apply the concepts of fluid pressure input and output to firefighting. Divide your class into small groups and give them each a few cards that list nozzle type, hose length, hose size, and structure dimensions, They are...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Lesson Plan of a Thematic Project - Water

Sixth graders investigate the properties of water. In this life science activity, 6th graders create a concept map of water. They share their work with the class.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Water Exploration Station

Learners explore the characteristics of water. For this water exploration lesson, students participate in various learning centers to inquire how water drains and how to increase the flow of water. Learners use estimation and measurement...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Air and Water Pressure

Students examine buoyancy and fluid pressure. They conduct a series of fun experiments to discover the effects of pressure and explore how pressure differences can be used to float, lift, transport, or hold a material in place.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER
