Homemade Barometer

To reinforce the action of air pressure, have your meteorology pupils construct a barometer. They place the barometer into a closed system, a miniature atmosphere if you will, and notice the movement of the needle on the homemade measurement device as they alter the pressure within. This lesson plan provides general instructions for building the barometer and conclusion questions for discussion.
