By Bernoulli, Where's Gravity?

Students observe a 1/4 inch by 2 inch piece of paper that is held vertically downward under the bottom lip, noting that the paper is pulled down by gravity. They predict what happens to the paper if air is blown out. After air is blown, they discuss that the paper seems to defy gravity, but actually, the air is forcing it up.
