Students will learn about density by adding different liquids to a graduated cylinder and seeing how they separate into layers. You can use almost any liquid but pick things that are different colors or add food coloring so students can see the layers separate. This lab worksheet is editable so you

Our density column lab puts a twist on students constructing a density column by having students: - Calculate the density of the liquids in advance, - Predict how the liquids will be layered in a graduated cylinder - Construct the density column - Optional part 3 have students add a marble and a p
Making density columns with your students will be a blast and it is easy! Guaranteed that they will not forget this activity or the physical properties of matter: volume, mass and density!This resource contains a lab activity that addresses the physical properties of matter, classifying, measuring a
Explore Relative Density with Your Students in This Density Column Investigation!Grade Level: 4th-6th | Content: Physical Properties of Matter, Relative Density How I use this in my classroom: As a 5th and 6th grade science teacher, I go from “sink/float” density to calculating D=M/V. I have to mak
Students use the physical property of density to explain how the Earth's layers stack according to their varying densities. Six liquids are used to represent the mechanical layers of the Earth - Lithosphere, Asthenosphere, Mesosphere (upper and lower mantle), Outer Core and Inner Core. Students coll

This product is a lab activity and CER writing all in one. It is used to help students understand the concept of relative density. Students create a column of different colored solutions of saltwater and then use their data to write a scientific explanation using claim, evidence, and reasoning. Th
This is a lab I do at the beginning of the year with my gifted students to introduce the steps of the scientific lab, the application of lab safety rules, and the use of process skills (observations and inferences) within a lab setting. I keep the bottles in the back of the room and we reference th
In this lab students will work with five different substances and create a density column. This lab will allow students to find the density of each of the five liquids and create a column in a cup. They are then asked a series of questions to help them better understand the concept of density.
This is a mess free way to help students understand the concept of density in liquids. Use 7 different test tubes that you can seal and create 2 liquid density columns. Students will color the different mini columns on their lab sheet. They are then asked to analyze their data and color what th
Make it a complete lesson day by introducing (m/v), (v/v), (m/m) percent solution calculations then send to the lab to make the best column. Students love the challenge all while doing calculations on percent sugar solution for each color. Students enjoy taking a picture of the column they made. Be
Use the CREATING A DENSITY VOLUME VIRTUAL LAB PRESENTATION (included) to create a density column containing four separate liquid layers - rubbing alcohol, vegetable oil, water, and corn syrup - using the density (mass per unit volume) of each substance as illustrated in the image below.Looking forwa

This new spin on the popular Density Column lab uses a data matrix. The lab teaches students about the densities of common substances by comparing them to the density of water. First, students test substances against each other to determine which of them sinks to the bottom of a test tube. Then th
9th - 12th
In this inquiry-based lab, students will be tasked with creating a density column with 3 distinct layers given limited materials. They will have a limited amount of time to write their own steps and to perform the lab. Before group members receive any of the materials to perform the lab, they must a

In this lab students will build a three-layer density column after researching the density of water, mineral oil, and isopropanol. Students can make these in clear straws or (what I prefer) plastic test tubes bought from amazon. Why not glassware? I encourage students to take them home and descri

This lab is the classic density column, but with extra support for lower-level students. There is a check-for-understanding (checkpoint) so that the student is held accountable for making a hypothesis before carrying out the experiment. The prediction is a coloring rather than a written one. Ther
In this lab, students will: - Make Predictions - Measure Volume - Measure Weight - Calculate Density - Create a 5 layer Density Column - Reflect on their predictions Can use a variety of different liquids but has been effective with 1) Honey 2) Dishsoap 3) Water (and food coloring) 4) Vegetabl

This lab is a very modified version of a density column lab. It works for both ENL and Special Education students. The students love the outcome of a "rainbow" column at the end. This lab requires the use of pre-measured liquids in medicine cups.
This density lab uses sugar solutions which are easy to prepare and work with. Making for easy clean up and less stress.
This NGSS aligned resource is designed to guide students through the Explore phase of discovery density in the 5E Model of Instruction. Students are provided 5 mystery liquids, each with a different color. They measure the mass of each liquid as well as the volume and then calculate the density of
