Be sure to stop by on Monday to see if you've won!

Also, we're running a blog hop! Check out the links at the bottom of the post to follow the hop!


Air Pressure is STRONG!
Wish you could do this in your classroom?
Well, you can! (Sort of).
See the next video!

The Amazing Smooshing Can!
I usually use this demo to introduce air pressure.
As students learn, they are able to explain what happens!

Another great air pressure demo for the classroom!
Low air pressure created by the burning oxygen leaves relatively high pressure outside.
This high pressure pushes the liquid into the cup!

Some engaging labs for students from my TpT store!
One lucky commentor on this post will receive a FREE copy of this lab pack!
Be sure to stop by on Monday to see if you've won,

    1. Thanks Mrs. O'Donnell - I'll be sure to check out your blog.

  2. Your pack looks like a lot of fun! I would love to win it.

  3. I love the pop can demo. I also use it when I teach wind to help students remember that air goes from high to low pressure.

  4. Love the videos! Just forwarded them over to our science team leader!

  5. I bought this and used in my class a couple of weeks ago! Thanks so much for your wonderful ideas!

    1. Thank you! I appreciate you visiting the store and blog! I'm glad you like it.
