This is an excerpt from Amazon's popular line of Bossy Brocci Math and Big Science workbooks! [it's pronounced like "Brawsee"]
Printing should be done in Landscape and DOUBLE-SIDED, with the flip being along the 'SHORT' side.

Most ELA, Math and Science teachers don't have more than 100
State Tests on their shoulders - and they enjoy anywhere from 60 to
90 minutes to teach their class. But I've been whipping the
State while teaching an average of 110 students per year - and
with only about 38 minutes for science class!
It's a matter of public record:
I've crushed the State by 17 to 32 points, and by an average
of 23 points over a 5-year stretch.
And I'm North Carolina's 2016 Top-Scoring Science Teacher.
I've done it with:
No Teaching Assistants,
No Remediation Class,
and No Test-Prep books or programs.
So what are my kids learning, doing and using?
Bossy Brocci worksheets.
1) Determine and Record various Physical Properties & Observations for 8 Irregular Solids (ideally Element and/or Mineral) provided by the Teacher into 2 Data Tables:
Color (and Identity - if known; e.g. Green Fluorite lump)
Mass of Dry Solid
Volume of Water in Graduated Cylinder (or other vessel) at Meniscus (depicted in Tables) BEFORE Solid lump is added
Volume of Water in Graduated Cylinder (or other vessel) at Meniscus (depicted in Tables) AFTER Solid lump is added
Volume of Solid lump (formula provided in Tables)
DENSITY of Solid lump (formula provided in Tables)
Density of Solid lump compared to Water's approx. density of 1
g/mL as being either 'Lower' or 'Bigger'
Description after submerging as either 'Sinker' or 'Floater'
2) Fill-in a total of 64 cells in 2 Data Tables
3) Answer 20 Fill-in-the-Blank and Multiple-choice questions based on their Calculations & Observations in the preceding Data Tables
4) Discover that Density:
Is a unique & identifying physical property;
Can be determined for irregularly-shaped solids via displacement of a fluid
Determines whether submerged objects sink or float
5) Be compelled to present their work in a neat & orderly format
6) Be trained to Calculate Density of Irregular Solids methodically & systematically
