Product Description

Spun-off from Amazon's popular line of Bossy Brocci Math and Big Science Workbooks, this BIG Bundle on Density contains: 13 Lessons and 41 Worksheets - and Assessment up the a$$!

This Density BIG Bundle contains the:

Density is an Identifying & Intensive Property Bundle

and the

Hands-On Experimental Calculation of Density Bundle.

It's like getting everything you need from his Amazon Big Science 5 book - but with larger student workspaces, and with just the press of a button. Individual cost would be $18, but the Bundle price is just $15!

122 slides are printed as 61 Landscape DOUBLE-SIDED sheets of paper, with the flip being along the 'SHORT' edge.

================================================

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 Tutors,

No Remediation Class,

and No Test-Prep books or programs.

So what are my kids learning, doing and using?

Bossy Brocci worksheets.

WACKY WATER'S DENSITY ANOMALY/DENSITY INVERSION

Students will:

1) Complete 2 Graphics or Illustrations in the shape of a couple of layered Graduated Cylinders or Beakers - one labeled 'If Water were like most substances' and the other labeled 'Water's Density Anomaly'
