This learning cycle features 12 videotaped experiments, organized sequentially for introducing fundamentals of fluid mechanics and Archimedes Principle. Each video includes learning goal, prior knowledge required, and post-activity questions. The instructional method is based on cognitive apprenticeship, in which students focus on scientific process by observing, finding patterns, modeling, predicting, testing, and revising. The materials were designed to mirror the activities of scientists when they construct and apply knowledge.
