Put some pressure on your class to construct bottle barometers. Using a jar, a balloon, and a straw, they can make an instrument for measuring atmospheric pressure. Consider having your class do this at home. You may need to provide the balloon and a straw, or better yet, try using the straw sticks from a broom!
