Air and Atmosphere
The sixteen practical activities in this resource provide an introduction to the properties of air and gases through an investigative and problem solving approach. The experiments can be carried out in any order and integrated into an existing scheme of work, and are ideal as part of a circus of activities around the classroom. Some activities can be developed for longer term investigations if required.
The activities cover air resistance, corrosion, combustion, carbon dioxide, expansion of gases, particle theory, air flow, air pressure, composition of air, pollution. Student worksheets are included with some of the experiments.
Warwick Process Science was compiled by an experienced team of teachers from comprehensive schools, mainly in Leicestershire, in collaboration with the University of Warwick.
