Observing Air & Flight



Share with Your Friends


This presentation explores the nature of air. Using the theme of flight, students learn the characteristics of air. They learn that air is made up of multiple gases with different properties, explore how air makes an airplane fly, witness air pressure in action as a student zips across the floor on a hovercraft, and observe how changing the shape of a giant ball determines whether it flops along or flies across a room.
