1 – 7 of 7 Classroom Resources
Measurements, Volume | Elementary School
Activity: Understanding Volume Measurements
In this activity, students will use base ten-centimeter blocks to fill containers in order to understand the concept of volume. Through discussion and review of the data, the teacher will lead them to discover the formula for determining volume.
Chemical Change, Volume | Elementary School, Middle School
Lab: Air Bag Design Challenge
In this lab, students will learn how chemistry is used in air bags. Students will model the inflation of an air bag by performing a series of reactions using baking soda and vinegar in a Ziploc bag. During this investigation, students will see that there is a relationship between the inflation size of the bag and the amount of reactants used. Finally, students will be challenged to design an air bag that can help an egg endure a crash test.
