Weather Fronts: Understanding the Movement of Air
Pupils study various types of weather fronts and what happens to air at different temperatures. In this investigative lesson plan students draw various weather fronts and show the movement of the air then they observe demonstrations of the differences between cold and hot air.
Air Masses & Fronts
Pupils identify two distinct air masses and the frontal boundary and determine whether the front is moving in time and in what direction the front is moving.
Air Masses & Fronts
Pupils use isotherms and temperature maps to determine wind direction and temperature. They answer questions using the maps
Twelfth graders explore integral calculus. In this Calculus lesson, 12th graders use the tools of integral calculus to investigate the motion of a free falling objet which is governed by both gravity and air resistance.
Air and Air Pressure
Students explore air and air pressure. In this science lesson plan, students find air and discover that it takes up space, has weight, and exerts pressure as they complete an activity.
Air Exerting Pressure
Students explore air pressure. In this science lesson plan, students show how air occupies space and exerts pressure and learn how great the effects of air pressure can be.
Is Air a Fluid?
Students use baking soda, vinegar, matches, and other materials to pour gas. In this air lesson plan, students use the materials to pour gas and learn that air can be a fluid like a liquid.
Hot Air Lesson Plan
Learners investigate the history of hot air balloons. In this technology lesson, students read the book Hot Air and develop a timeline of events which demonstrate the history of hot air balloons.
How Does Latitude Correlate With Sea Surface and Air Temperature?
Students examine data from ocean buoys to determine the relationship between latitude, sea surface and temperature. In this latitude lesson students use the Internet to access the information that allows them to better understand the differences between ocean and air temperature.
Warm Air Versus Cold Air Experiment
For this warm air versus cold air worksheet, students conduct an experiment with water color in warm air and cold air. students complete 4 activities.
Letter Writing Accuracy, Air Write
Students work in pairs to play an air writing game. In this air writing lesson plan, students are given a written letter to practice. Students use their finger to write a letter in the air and their partner must try to guess what letter he or she wrote. Students continue playing the game with accuracy.
The Air Up There
Learners observe the weather over a period of two weeks. They gather local weather data and calculate the mean and average figures from the data. They prepare a graph with their observations.
Reading Comprehension 3 (Level 7)
Have you ever been in a hot air balloon? Whether your readers are English language learners or native speakers, assess their reading comprehension with this short passage and the seven multiple-choice questions that follow. A detailed answer guide is provided to help learners understand the correct answer for each question.
#22c Airplane flight #22d Airplane flight--How High? How Fast?
Students discuss the application of frames of reference to an airplane flying with a constant velocity v through the air.
Students explain the role of convection currents in the movement of air. In this earth science lesson, students investigate convection by observing a boiling water in the lab. They describe how fluids move when they experience convection.
Matter and Molecular Motion
Fourth graders define the states of matter and their properties. They demonstrate the air is matter and observe the effect of molecular motion through these activities.
Fun with Bernoulli
Students use paper, cups, ping pong balls and balloons to conduct an experiment with air pressure that illustrates Bernoulli's Principle. They reflect on how the knowledge of this principle enables engineers to make airplanes fly.
Students design and build original mobiles and consider how the forces of gravity and convection air currents affect the finished piece. They explore how an understanding of balancing forces is important in both art and engineering design.
Students calculate acceleration due to gravity with the measurements of the period of a pendulum or measurements of the time for an object to fall from different heights. They observe and measure the effect of air resistance on the motion of coffee filters.
It's a Gas!
Learners investigate gases and their properties by completing 4 activities. In this gases lesson plan, students perform activities to show that gases take up space, they diffuse, and that odors and vibrations pass through gases. They observe that oxygen is needed for combustion, that carbon dioxide gas is release through a chemical reaction and that hydrogen gas is flammable.
