Density is a "must-know" concept and skill in every physical science or chemistry class. This color by number activity provides a fun way for students to review and reinforce mass, volume, and density calculations. Students will complete a set of 24 questions and practice problems. Each correct answer will lead to a code for coloring a section of the coloring page. As students progress through the questions, the picture slowly comes to life. This resource includes student worksheets, two coloring page versions, complete answer key, and a teacher guide. Students love to color!
