Showing 1 - 20 of 152 resources
Young scholars 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.
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.
Have a Ball with Bernoulli
Third graders investigate Bernoulli's Principle. In this Bernoulli's Principle lesson, 3rd graders examine blowing air through a tube and the movement of the ball. Students make inquiries into what effect the air has on the ball and answer questions.
Bubble-ology and Bernoulli
Young scholars explore aerodynamics and Bernoulli's principle by devising ways to keep bubbles aloft.
Bernoulli's Principle and Winged Flight
Third graders study Bernoulli's Principle and Winged Flight. In this biology lesson plan, 3rd graders to see how the decrease in air pressure which occurs when air is moving allows birds to fly.
The Bounty of Bernoulli
Learners explain how Bernoulli's principle apply to some phenomena. In this physics lesson, students draw and explain the demonstrations shown in class. They research and design their own demo on Bernoulli's principle.
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.
The Bernoulli Effect - Conceptually
Students observe and/or conduct five experiments which address the Bernoulli Effect. In this conceptual lesson based on the Bernoulli Effect, the students construct atomizers, and make concrete observations and inferences in connection with the Bernoulli Effect.
The Wright Brothers and Bernoulli's Principle
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 Principle was applied to the Wright Brothers first flights.
Students demonstrate the Bernoulli Principle, review the influences that affected the Wright Brothers, and make and modify paper airplanes. This amazing lesson plan has an excellent structure, and very clear plans for the students to create their planes.
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. Three pages are given to each lab group: one with competition rules, another with design diagrams, and a third with a data table and questions to answer.
High schoolers explore the relationship between velocity and pressure of a fluid. After a lecture/demo, students engage in an experiment which demonstrate the Bernoulli Effect and enhance their understanding.
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.
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.
An Uplifting Experience
Fifth graders conduct flight experiments. In 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.
Learners participate in a series of demonstrations about Bernoulli's principle. They explain how air pressure varies with air speed. They write a detailed lab report about the activity. This is a great way to explore this concept.
Physics 240: Fluid Dynamics
For this fluid dynamics worksheet, students use Bernoulli's equation and Pascal's principle to complete 4 word problems. Descriptive answers are included.
Physics 240: Fluid Dynamics
In this fluid dynamics worksheet, students review the continuity equation for fluids and apply Bernoulli's equation and Pascal's principle to complete 4 problems.
Keep Your Bubbles Up
Students investigate design and the correct use of technology. In this chemistry lesson, students investigate the Bernoulli Principle using hands on bubble making. They link the principle that keeps the bubble aloft to the BP principle.
Applied Science - Physics Pre-Lab
Students observe fluid motion. In this Physics lesson, students explore the principles of Pascal, Archimedes, and Bernoulli. Students list their experiences with fluid movement.
