Bernoulli's Principle Teacher Resources
Find Bernoulli's Principle educational ideas and activities
Showing 1 - 20 of 165 resources
Students explore Bernoulli's principle, how it is related to flight, and the effect of lift, thrust, and drag on flight. They design and develop an experiment that tests for distance traveled by their paper airplane, and record and analyze their flight data.

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 lesson even includes differentiation ideas for English language learners, special needs situations, and advanced students.

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.
