Experimental activities have a crucial role in physics education, because they represent one of the methods peculiar to discipline and facilitate the connection between experience and interpretation. They acquire particular significance if related and linked to every day experience. In this context we propose a reasoned sequence of experiences based on easy found and low-cost materials, suitable to shed light on essential concepts connected to a variety of physics fields. All illustrated four didactic proposals are carried out by using tinplate jars and each one drives at an integrated balancing between formal and informal education by scheduling various teaching methodologies in order to engage students having different learning styles.
