⁣Lesson Plan: How to Make an Ice Air Cooler Conditioner Using a Coca Cola Bottle

Grade Level: 9-12

Subject: Physics and Environmental Science

Duration: 60 minutes

Common Core Standards:
- CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RST.9-10.3: Follow multistep instructions when carrying out experiments or technical tasks.
- CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.W.9-10.2: Write informative/explanatory texts, including the narration of historical events, scientific procedures/experiments, or technical processes.

Lesson Objectives:
- Students will learn about the principles of evaporative cooling and heat transfer in relation to making an ice air cooler conditioner.
- Students will understand the components and techniques involved in constructing an air cooler using a Coca Cola bottle.
- Students will be able to explain the steps and science behind making an ice air cooler conditioner.

- Coca Cola bottle (empty and clean)
- Utility knife or scissors
- Small fan or handheld fan
- Ice cubes or frozen water bottles
- Water

1. Begin the lesson by discussing the concepts of evaporative cooling and heat transfer, emphasizing their roles in cooling air.
2. Show examples or videos of DIY air coolers made using Coca Cola bottles, explaining the components and mechanisms involved.
3. Explain to the students that they will be creating their own ice air cooler conditioner using a Coca Cola bottle and simple materials.
4. Divide the students into small groups and provide each group with the necessary materials.
5. Instruct the students to carefully cut a rectangular hole on one side of the Coca Cola bottle using a utility knife or scissors. This will serve as the air outlet.
6. Cut another rectangular hole on the opposite side of the bottle, near the bottom. This will serve as the air inlet.
7. Place a small fan or handheld fan near the air inlet of the Coca Cola bottle, ensuring that it blows air into the bottle.
8. Fill the bottle with ice cubes or frozen water bottles, leaving some space at the top.
9. Pour a small amount of water into the bottle, enough to wet the ice cubes or frozen water bottles.
10. Turn on the fan and observe as the air is drawn into the bottle through the air inlet, passes over the ice, and exits through the air outlet, resulting in cooler air.
11. Discuss the science behind evaporative cooling and heat transfer, explaining how the water on the ice evaporates, absorbing heat from the surrounding air and cooling it down.
12. Encourage students to experiment with different fan speeds, ice quantities, and water levels to optimize the cooling performance of their ice air cooler conditioner.

- Observe students' engagement and understanding during the construction and operation of the ice air cooler conditioner.
- Evaluate students' comprehension of the scientific principles through class discussions and their ability to explain the steps and science behind making the cooler.
