Product Description

This middle school activity is a great addition to both density and thermal energy (heat) units, and is also useful when teaching weather and plate tectonics. The document includes one page (front + back) of a middle school level reading with diagrams about how density creates convection currents in various situations. Examples discussed include ocean currents, weather, plate tectonics, and currents in heating homes. There is also a 10-question worksheet with text-dependent reading comprehension questions.
