Science: What Is a Barometer?

Fourth graders discover how barometers help to predict the weather. Using newspapers, they examine the weather forecast and determine the meaning of high and low as they pertain to pressure. After making cluster diagrams, 4th graders in small groups discuss and answer questions in their journals. The lesson includes a teacher demonstration of how Torricelli invented the barometer.
