Balloon in a Bottle

Balloon in a Bottle

In this physics activity (page 3 of the PDF), learners will see firsthand that air takes up space and has pressure by attempting to inflate a balloon inside of a bottle. Though this activity was created as a pre-visit for a traveling science show, it makes a great stand-alone activity as well!
