#### 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

#### 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

#### 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

#### 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

#### 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

#### 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

#### 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

#### 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

#### 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 lesson, students shoot water out of a...

Lesson Planet

#### Ups and Downs of Diving

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

Lesson Planet

#### 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

#### 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

#### 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

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

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

Lesson Planet

#### Water Exploration Station

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

Lesson Planet

#### 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

#### Locks and Dams

Students learn about locks and dams when it comes to blocking water. In this dam lesson, students learn about the structure, function, and purpose of locks and dams. They also learn about water pressure and gravity.

Lesson Planet

#### Under Pressure

Students work in small groups to conduct an investigation focusing on the questions included in this lesson. Upon completion of activity, they respond to a set of questions in their science journals.

Lesson Planet

#### How Wet Can You Get?

Students visit a swimming pool and brainstorm different water sports and what benefits swimming has over other types of exercise. They then discuss buoyancy and water pressure and when how objects sink or float before playing a game of...

Lesson Planet

#### Water Pressure - Observing Water Flow

Students discover that pressure increases the deeper the ocean becomes. They determine how water pressure differs at various depths by observing water flow.
