a lesson plan exchange service on STEAM Education. Give to receive! Click here to X-Change!
If X= knowledge, we are exchanging it!
X-Change is a service for exchanging Lesson Plans between STEAM educators. It is a way of sharing knowledge and exchanging teaching resources, in which we transmit to other colleagues lesson plans that we have written or that we have already used. We recycle our knowledge of STEAM Education.
What is a Lesson Plan?
It is a tutorial that demonstrates how a specific STEAM educational activity is carried out or a document that contains information necessary to carry out a practical task in the context of a STEAM Education activity!
Each lesson plan received by EASE is reviewed and if selected, credits will be given to the account of the author who submits each lesson plan.
With the credits you collect, you can access other Lesson Plans from European colleagues, exchanging EASE credits you’ve accumulated.
This service has no profit goals and EASE credits only serve to value the contribution of each one.
However, EASE members receive automatically a certain amount of credits with their membership.
How does it work?
- Create an EASE account;
- Submit your own lesson plans to EASE’s X-Change;
- Gain EASE credits;
- Invest your EASE credits in other colleagues’ lesson plans. We’re exchanging!
Also leave your review about the Lesson Plans on our X-Change!
Cloud in a Jar
In this activity, students will create a cloud inside of a glass jar. The benefit to this activity is that
students are able to see the cloud forming and moving in the jar due to the hairspray. This activity could
be used as an introduction to how clouds are formed and different weather systems.

What is a cloud made of? A cloud is simply a visible condensation of water that is suspended in the air.
Clouds form as warm air rises in the atmosphere and then cools down. The sun heats water, which causes
it to evaporate into the air. Warmer air rises and cooler air sinks. As the warmer air containing water vapor
rises, it is cooled. As the water vapor cools, it condenses into water droplets onto particles, such as dust,
in the air. As more and more air cools, more droplets are formed and create a visible cloud. When a large
number of water droplets stick together, gravity pulls them back to earth, creating rain.
