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) Calculate and Record in a single Data Pattern Table the DENSITY for 8 total unknown metal Rectangular Prism and Cylinder specimens, comprised of pairs of:
with different Masses, Volumes and Shapes (Rectangular Prism and Cylinder)
[Teachers NOTE: you DON'T need these specimens; I've provided actual specimen dimensions - your students just have to crunch the numbers, calculate DENSITY - and discover that specimen shapes and dimensions may change, BUT density does NOT: Density is a unique, identifying and intensive property!]
2) Calculate & Record in Data Pattern Table:
Volume (given Base Area and Height of each specimen)
Density (formula provided in Table)
3) Identify and Record each specimen using given/reference Densities in Table
4) Describe each specimen as a 'Floater' or a 'Sinker' after submerging in water
5) Fill-in a total of 32 cells in 1 Data Pattern Table
6) Answer 50 Fill-in-the-Blank and Multiple-choice questions based on their Calculations & Observations in the preceding Data Pattern Table
7) Discover that Density:
Is a unique & identifying physical property;
Is an INTENSIVE PROPERTY (unlike mass & volume)
Determines whether submerged objects sink or float
8) Be compelled to present their work in a neat & orderly format
9) Be trained to Calculate Density, and understand & use it as a unique, identifying and INTENSIVE property methodically & systematically
