Do your students need help with understanding density?
This lesson includes all of the following:
Matter, mass, volume, density, triple beam balance, graduated cylinders, and more!
What you get:
-Reading about density
-Page on how to find mass
-Page on how to find volume or regular and irregular shaped objects
-Explanation page on how to find the density
-A worksheet that they will use throughout the whole lesson
-Teacher tip page on how to use this lesson
-A fun mini page that gives directions on how to create a density column with discussion questions!
Note: This lesson does require you to use some materials for calculating mass and volume. I have given suggestions for using materials that most teachers will have available and easy access to.
Materials needed: Triple beam balance, graduated cylinders, materials for students to measure mass and volume
This lesson should help your students understand what density is and how to go about figuring it out for objects. Writing prompts give them opportunities to think about how it applies to their everyday lives.
Hope you enjoy!
