GUB Explorer Channel – Warm Air Rises (English)
- Resource Type
Warm air can move things. Explore the principle of buoyancy with us, build a moving air snake and make a bag rocket rise. In this video, elementary school children and kindergarteners learn that warm air rises. In elementary school and kindergarten, children can replicate this experiment under adult guidance and supervision, because experimenting with air is really fun. Warm air rises because it has a lower density than cold air. It is therefore lighter than the heavy cold air. This is where children discover the principle of buoyancy.
