Lesson Planet

The Wright Brothers and Bernoulli's Principle

For Teachers 8th
Eighth graders explore Bernoulli's Principle to airplane design.  In this physic lesson, 8th graders explore and analyze primary source images of various examples of flight by grouping images by similarities. They explore how Bernoulli's...
Lesson Planet

Understanding Bernoulli's Principle

For Teachers 5th
Fifth graders explain why we fly. In this space science lesson, 5th graders discuss Bernoulli's prinicple and its relation to flight.
Lesson Planet


For Teachers 4th
Fourth graders experiment with gravity and lift by building paper airplanes. In this physics lesson, 4th graders compare the falling rate of a crumpled vs. flat sheet of paper. Then after class discussion and demonstration of Bernoulli's...
Lesson Planet


For Students 7th - 9th
In this density instructional activity, students choose the statement from column 1 that best matches the description in column 2. Students determine whether objects will float or sink based on their density. Students apply Bernoulli's...
Lesson Planet

Bernoulli's Principle Activities

For Teachers 8th
Eighth graders demonstrate Bernoulli's Principle in two simple activities after a discussion session on Bernoulli's Principle and its applications. Students divide into small groups to complete activities and wrap-up with a few review...
Lesson Planet

Mechanical Science - Small Engine Operation

For Teachers 9th - 12th
High schoolers experiment with two- and four-stroke engines. They conduct experiments to determine how atmospheric pressure affects the engine's running capability. Further tests are conducted to asses proper llubrication and its...
Lesson Planet

Bernoulli's Principle: Wind and Wings

For Teachers K - 8th
Students investigate Bernoulli's aeronautical discoveries. Working in groups they conduct simple experiments with paper that demonstrate how airplane wings work and how they are affected by air pressure.
Lesson Planet

Introduction to Flight

For Teachers 3rd - 5th
Students discuss flight, define flight, lift, drag, weight, and thrust, and discover Bernoulli's Principle.
Lesson Planet

Get a Lift!

For Teachers 6th - 12th
Students explain the principles of flight. For this physics lesson, students perform a series of exploration activity on Bernoulli's principle. They relate this principle to airplane flight.
Lesson Planet

Sailing Through Bernoulli

For Teachers 7th - 8th
Students participate in a class discussion about Bernoulli's principle while looking at cross-sections of an airplane wing, and discussing the sail on a sailboat and the spoiler on a race car.
Lesson Planet

An Uplifting Experience

For Teachers 4th - 6th
Students examine the forces that affect the flight of airplanes through the use of paper airplanes. They conduct Internet research, conduct experiments demonstrating Bernoulli's Principle, and design and construct a paper airplane.
