The Wind Blew
A chapter from Even More Picture-Perfect Science Lessons: Using Children’s Books to Guide Inquiry, K–5 Free
Average User Rating:
What is wind? What is it made of? What can it do? In this lesson, students explore ways to change the speed and direction of a Ping-Pong ball using a handheld air pump to simulate wind. Simple experiments help them understand that air has weight and moving air applies a force to objects. Students investigate how wind strength, opposing wind force, and weight affect the motion of a sailboat. This sample chapter also includes the Preface, About the...  [view full summary]
