Product Description
Students will discover the connection between density and whether an object will sink or float.

How can we determine if an object will sink or float in water? In this activity, students will calculate the density of butter and compare it to the density of water. They will make predictions about whether the butter will float or sink in the water based on their calculations and then test these predictions.
