What these experiments tell us?

  1. Air is a material. It takes up space and can move or be moved from one place to another (activities 1, 2, 4, and 5).

  2. Air can push (activity 5).

  3. Air has a mass (activity 3).

  4. Bubbles contain gas. They are lighter than water so the bubbles rise (as can be observed in activities 1,2 and 4). In the lemonade they gather around the raisins and lift them (like armbands in a swimming pool). The raisins sink again when the bubbles burst at the surface.

  5. Air can be compressed/squashed (activity 1).
