Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### TeachEngineering: Floaters and Sinkers

Why do some objects sink while others float? That’s the question young engineers tackle in a unit module of two lessons and three activities. With some help from Archimedes (and his principle) and the principle of buoyancy, scholars...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### The Physics of Fluid Mechanics

In this collection, Pascal’s law, Archimedes’ Principle, and Bernoulli’s Principle aid young engineers in understanding the physics of fluid mechanics. Armed with the knowledge of how forces are applied to fluids, scholars design...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### College Physics for AP® Courses

Take a look at an organized physics course. The 34-section electronic textbook covers material in AP® Physics 1 and 2. Teachers use the text to supplement lectures and have the class work through the labs. Each section contains multiple...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Buoyancy Boats

What did the sea say to the boat? Nothing, it just waved. An inquiry-based lesson starts with a simple concept on the Archimedes Principle and challenges pupils to make something out of clay that floats. Then, they design an object out...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### The Real Story Behind Archimedes' Eureka!

Can a boat the size of a palace possibly float? Discover how a king and a famous Ancient Greek mathematician named Archimedes answered this question, and explore the history behind Archimedes' principle and how a law of physics that is...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Physics Skill and Practice Worksheets

Stop wasting energy searching for physics resources, this comprehensive collection of worksheets has you covered. Starting with introductions to the scientific method, dimensional analysis, and graphing data, these skills practice...

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

#### Buoyancy and Viscosity

Some of these beautiful diagrams should help your students understand the connections between pressure and flight. Pressure and density are also discussed, and a number of links are included to give fantastic interactive examples of...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Buoyant Boats

Eureka! Using the clay boats made in the previous lesson, learners investigate the idea of buoyancy and water displacement to finish the last installment of five in a Floaters and Sinkers unit. Their observations during the activity...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### What Floats Your Boat?

Clay's as good a material as any to build a boat, right? An introductory lesson sets the stage for two activities associated with buoyancy. The first involves building boats out of clay, while the second uses these boats to measure the...

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

#### Boat Building Challenge

Scholars build a boat using an assortment of materials such as foam plates, aluminum foil, and skewers, then test its buoyancy with pennies. Challenge boat builders to construct the strongest or fastest boat in a healthy competition with...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Going Fishing

Why do some things float and others sink? A creative simulation allows learners to adjust mass and volume of an object to affect its buoyancy in water. A graph records the effect of each manipulation.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Exploring Buoyancy

Dive into a STEM lesson! Scholars learn about positive and negative buoyancy and how they relate to concepts of density and pressure. They design a device that can dive into water to pick up an object.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Density

Change the density of water by adding minerals. The presentation discusses density—from the definition to calculations—and applies it to the real world. It briefly mentions specific gravity, and finishes by showing Archimedes' principle.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Properties of Matter

The properties of matter including buoyancy, viscosity, density, pressure, and more are explained in a video that also describes the various principles and laws that are associated with each property.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Fluids

In 1879, Sir William Crookes discovered the fourth state of matter, plasma. The presentation covers states of matter, phase changes, density, pressure Pascal's Principle, buoyant force, Archimedes' Principle, Bernoulli's Principle,...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Rock and Boat

Present the class with a question on whether the water level of a pond will rise they take a large rock out of a boat and drop it into the pond. Groups come down on all sides of the question and try to justify their answers. The activity...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Above-Ground Storage Tanks in the Houston Ship Channel

Introduce your class to storage tank failures caused by major storms with an activity that looks at how the concepts of Archimedes' Principle and Pascal's Law affect the storage tanks along the Houston Ship Channel. The background...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Above-Ground Storage Tank Design Project

The challenge: determine whether a tank will float. A design activity has groups work as engineering teams in order to determine the stability of given tanks and liquid contents. The teams need to determine the equations to calculate the...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Cartesian Diver

Amaze your scholars with an activity that uses a Cartesian diver to demonstrate Pascal's Law, Archimedes' Principle, and the Ideal Gas Law. Groups then repeat the process and make their own diver move up and down in a bottle.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Forces in Fluids

Buoyancy is the fine line between a ship and a submarine. The presentation covers fluid pressure, air pressure, Pascal's Principle, elevation, Archimedes Principle, buoyancy, and Bernoulli's Principle.
