PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A large 52-slide PowerPoint to introduce the concept of density and how it relates to sinking and floating. This presentation begins with a fun starter activity modeled after David Letterman's famous recurring skit, "Will it Float?" to introduce how density, gravity and buoyancy explain why things float and sink.

In addition, this presentation includes the following basic topics:


Contents:

- What is density
- Calculating density
- Sinking and floating through the lens of density
- Gravity
- Buoyancy
- The Archimedes principle


BONUS!

This presentation includes a short quiz at the end where students have to rank substances floating in a density column according to order of relative density.
