Air Pressure Experiment
Young children are naturally curious and very creative. Put those qualities together with a little water and some household stuff, and you’ve got unlimited possibilities (as long as you can tolerate a teeny bit of a mess sometimes).
Here’s a science activity that lets your first grader have fun with an empty dish soap bottle to create his own fountain as he explores air pressure. Get ready for an adventure that’s both zany fun and good, solid science, too!
What You Need:
- Empty dish soap bottle
- Thumbtack or nail
- Bucket or sink
- Towel or paper towels for cleaning up
