Bernoulli's Principle Teacher Resources
Find Bernoulli's Principle educational ideas and activities
Showing 1 - 20 of 165 resources
Thorough instructions are given to guide you through making a demonstration hydraulic pump from two plastic soda bottles. After using the resource to teach your class about Pascal's and Bernoulli's principles, turn them loose in groups to design their own working water fountains.
5th - 12th Science
Crash Course in Flight
High school physicists demonstrate Bernoulli's Principle by blowing on different items and finding that they do not move in the expected direction! They apply Bernoulli's equation to the flight of an airplane. This well-organized instructional activity even includes differentiation ideas for English language learners, special needs situations, and advanced students.
9th - 12th Science
Bernoulli's Principle Lab
Students are introduced Bernoulli's Principle and how it shows the relationship between fluid speed and pressure change. In groups, they participate in experiments in different processes in the industrial world. They share their conclusions with the rest of the class to end the lesson plan.
9th - 12th Science
Another A+ physics presentation, this one on gases, is brought to you by the Nevada Joint Union High School District. Cohesive, compact, and even cute, this collection of slides leads viewers through an exploration of the properties and behavior of gases, atmospheric pressure, the use of Boyle's law and Bernoulli's principle, and ends with a brief introduction to plasma.
9th - 12th Science
Demonstrate lift to the class that is studying aerodynamics. In the stream of air produced by a blow dryer, little physicists place a wad of tissue paper and a spherical figure to compare. Or, if you have a vacuum cleaner and beach ball, you can demonstrate on a larger scale.
6th - 10th Science
Paper Airplane Competition
The guidelines for holding a paper airplane competition are here for you to use with junior high flight engineers. No educational explanations are included, however, so make sure to teach about forces, flight, and Bernoulli's principle prior to conducting the activity.
6th - 8th Science
Hey, Bernoulli...Need a Lift?
Students investigate the principles of flight. In this "flight" physics lesson, students brainstorm animals and objects that fly and any characteristics they have in common. Students view a video and construct a boomerang according to directions given.
4th - 7th Science
The class conducts a simple experiment to demonstrate the Bernoulli Principle. After completing the experiment, they will discuss their findings. To prep for this activity, appropriate resource material on the Bernoulli Principle will be needed as no background information is provided.
TE Lesson: Can You Take the Pressure?
Students study the concept of air pressure and how air pressure creates force on an object. They examine Bernoulli's principle as it enables engineers to use the nature of air pressure as they design airplanes, cars, trains, rockets, and bicycles.
4th - 6th Technology & Engineering
An Uplifting Experience
Fifth graders conduct flight experiments. For this uplifting experience lesson, 5th graders build an airfoil and place in a variety of conditions to observe the results of lift and force in flight, as well as angle of attack. Students make predictions and discuss Bernoulli's Principle.
By Bernoulli, Where's Gravity?
Students observe a 1/4 inch by 2 inch piece of paper that is held vertically downward under the bottom lip, noting that the paper is pulled down by gravity. They predict what happens to the paper if air is blown out. After air is blown, they discuss that the paper seems to defy gravity, but actually, the air is forcing it up.
