Water Pressure Fountain
Students explore physical sciences by conducting a water properties experiment. In this water pressure lesson, students utilize an empty soda bottle, water jug, water and knife to create a mock water fountain. Students create a water fountain by poking holes in precise locations while discussing the force and pressure associated with the device.

Young scholars spend time examining the concept of water pressure. In groups, they research the amount of air pressure that is felt at different levels above sea level. Using a calculator, they calculate the water pressure given different ATM levels and research how to deal with the effects of water pressure while examining the ocean floor.

What Is Barometric Pressure and How Is It Measured?
Students investigate barometric pressure. In this weather instructional activity, students participate in several hands-on activities to show air has pressure. Students lift a textbook without using their hands, observe a demonstration where a napkin in a glass stays dry when submersed in water, and create their own barometer.

What is Air? Pre-Assessment
First, estimate existing knowledge about air with a class discussion. Then, hand out a 10-question pre-assessment quiz to record how much pupils know to compare to their knowledge later. This will also give mini meteorologists the breadth of what will be covered in the unit.
