"Candle in a Jar" Trailer

Students use a jar to snuff out candles in a pan of water and see how high the water rises in the jar when the candles go out. This relates to liquids, gases, atmospheric pressure, temperature, and combustion. This video also includes one of Mr. Mac's crazy stories, "Beanstalk Island," to help students remember the lesson. Difficulty: Easy
