Product Description
Students can explore density with these hands-on activities. Using common household items and things obtained from the grocery store, students will perform 2 hands-on station labs, one dedicated to density, and the second covers density, buoyancy, viscosity. Included are student data sheets with analysis questions, a practice sheet, and an informative Power point presentation.

This product includes:
- 12-slide Power point covering the concept of density and how it is calculated
- 4-page guided, Cornell-style student handout to complete while viewing the Ppt
- Density Explorations Station Lab - 4 stations to visit with directions and student
data sheet with analysis questions
- Explorations Station Lab - Density, Buoyancy, and Viscosity: 4 stations to visit,
with student procedures/data/analysis handout
- Density Calculations Partner Practice - Students pair up to calculate problems
using the density formula.
- All answer keys
- Teacher tips, instructions, and how to prep for the labs

These activities can be completed in 3-4 regular class periods, or 2 block periods, if you include all of the activities.

The activities ask students to:
- build a buoyant boat made of foil
- test the viscosity of three different liquids
- build a device that neither sinks nor floats
- watch what happens to an ice cube in vegetable oil
- examine a density column
- test whether a can of regular soda or a can of diet soda have different densities
- and more

I find that these activities spark their imagination and give them a better understanding of the property, density.
