Burn, Baby Burn (Or Not)

Physics learners apply the concepts of fluid pressure input and output to firefighting. Divide your class into small groups and give them each a few cards that list nozzle type, hose length, hose size, and structure dimensions, They are to calculate the required pressure for the pump to put out the fire without damaging the hose. Then they switch cards with another group and try again with new dimensions. This lesson plan is vague, but the activity provides valuable problem solving practice.

Lesson Planet has given me great ideas for 3rd grade science hands-on activities! I even got a note from one of my principals observing my class while I was using one of the lessons that I found through this website; she LOVED what I was doing and that the kids were excited and very involved.
