Oh wow! I love this! I'm not the most confident about teaching air pressure, but this lesson gives hands on activities to make it real for the students. I can't wait to actually try it. This will really help me as a teacher.

This article is a great read. It provides readers with many useful ideas. Students love songs. If students are given the opportunity to create a song out of the important information they are learning, then they will be able to remember the information better. Very beneficial for teachers planning on teacher elementary students.
