In this activity, students observe fluid motion and the formation of convection cells as a solution of soap and water is heated. This procedure can be performed as a demonstration by the teacher, or older students can conduct the experiment themselves. A list of materials, instructions, and a description of the convective process are included. Full description.

Comment on this resource
In this two-part activity, students observe the phenomenon of convection and the fact that air can behave as a fluid like water, only less dense. They should understand that convection currents are found in many places and on many scales, such as huge convection currents in the atmosphere, oceans, and even in the Earth's interior, or as smaller convection currents that can be found in a cup of hot ...
