In the Paper Bag Bernoulli activity learners make observations while conducting simple activities that demonstrate Bernoulli's principle: as air moves around an object, it creates different pressure. Initially, learners create a paper bag mask where they manipulate the tongue by blowing air. To explain what they see, learners conduct experiments using ping pong balls, sheets of paper, and other easily accessible materials.
Paper Bag Bernoulli: How does moving air create lift?
Objective: Understand how lift is created for an airplane by observing how air moves around an object.
Scenario and Task: Today you are going to be an engineer. You will design a tongue for a Paper Bag Mask. Your tongue must lift, but the only thing you can use to make it move is air blowing around the tongue.
AeroEducate K-2 Activities are developed for younger learners to investigate aerodynamics topics such as drag, lift, or Bernoulli’s Principle. Designed in a 5-E lesson format, each activity begins with an essential question, incorporates a career component through a real-world scenario, and introduces age-appropriate vocabulary. Background information for the facilitator is included. Posters that illustrate key concepts associated with the lesson can be printed or viewed electronically. Templates are included as needed.
Full access to the activity and supporting resources is provided once free registration to the AeroEducate website is completed.
