A Gratifying Gander into Gases
Students will learn about the different properties and behaviors of gases and use the scientific method to conduct an experiment involving gases What does dry ice, an empty soda can, balloons, a hard boiled egg, a glass bottle, and measuring tape have in common? They are all materials going to be used in various scientific experiments to demonstrate the different properties and behaviors of gases! Over the course of a month, students will explore gases and learn about the different laws that govern gases and the practical implications of each law and how they go to explain different phenomenon around the world. Through the various scientific experiments explaining each law, students will learn and apply the different steps of the scientific method as they make hypotheses, collect data, and draw conclusions. By the end of the unit, students will be on their way to becoming full-fledged scientists having conquered the basics of gases.
