Push the envelope with this lesson on atmospheric pressure! Your physics or geology juniors will be amazed at your super-human ability as you demonstrate the breaking of a stick using a newspaper! They also work with peers to construct a working barometer and to simulate the movement of cold and warm air masses. This powerful pair of activities is supplemented by a slew of assessment suggestions.
