In the Air Pressure unit, students will learn the following information: air takes up space, even though you can’t see it, and air is always moving. They will also learn that air presses on everything from all directions, and slow moving air has greater pressure than fast moving air. Students will also experience how important air is in enabling us to speak.
Enrichment activities are offered at the end of each experiment. They will encourage students to see if they will get different or similar results by holding items at different angles, or at greater or lesser distances. Sometimes by using different materials they may see the same results, while other times they may experience different results. Students will be encouraged to try different velocities to try to change an outcome, and to always wonder what may happen. The senses of touch and hearing will also be involved in learning new information.
