What is Air Pressure?

Air pressure refers to the force of air applied onto an object. Air pressure changes depending on which part of the atmosphere it's in, due to the fact that gravity's pull will be stronger closer to the earth and will be less strong as it moves further into the atmosphere.

As you teach your students about air pressure, it will be important to give them lots of hands-on experience with the concept. This will give them the chance to see first-hand how air pressure works. Use the following activities and games to help your students learn more about air pressure.
