- Forces and Motion
Air is made of atoms and molecules just like everything else around us. When we feel air on our skin, we are feeling its atoms and molecules hitting us.
Wind is moving air. The faster the air molecules move, the stronger the wind or breeze we feel. You can create your own "wind" with fans.
In this activity, students explore how different objects move in the "wind" from an electric fan.
This activity is a part of The Air Up There a unit made for Science World's Big Science for Little Hands program. They were developed and tested with Preschool and Kindergarten educators. The Air Up There printable guide.
