Will Global Warming Cause a Rise in Sea Level? A Simple Activity about the States of Water
Oguz, Ayse
Science Activities: Classroom Projects and Curriculum Ideas, v46 n1 p17-20 Spr 2009
In this activity, a possible problem related to global warming is clarified by the principle of states of water. The activity consists of an experiment that includes three scientific principles: Archimedes' Principle, the Law of Conservation of Matter, and the fluidity of liquids. The experiment helps students raise questions and open new horizons of curiosity in their minds. It forms bridges between the mind and senses in the physical world and encourages integrated thinking in science. The experiment could easily apply to any school level, including elementary or middle school, and in any context. (Contains 3 figures.)
