Density is an interesting property of matter. This unit starts with phenomena. This resource integrates three subjects into two great lessons and is aligned with CCSS for mathematics 5th and 6th grade and CCSS for ELA Reading Informational Text 5th and 6th grade. The science concepts are aligned with NGSS for 5th and 6th grade and middle school.

NGSS Alignment:

NGSS 5-PS1-1.

Develop a model to describe that matter is made of particles too small to be seen.

NGSS 5-PS1-3.

Make observations and measurements to identify materials based on their properties.


Analyze and interpret data on the properties of substances before and after the substances interact to determine if a chemical reaction has occurred. 

Utah SEEd 5.2.1 Develop and use a model to describe that matter is made of particles on a scale that is too small to be seen.

And the Utah SEEd 6.2 Density describes how closely matter is packed together. Substances with a higher density have more matter in a given space than substances with a lower density. Changes in heat energy can alter the density of a material.


Find the volume of a right rectangular prism with fractional edge lengths by packing it with unit cubes of the appropriate unit fraction edge lengths, and show that the volume is the same as would be found by multiplying the edge lengths of the prism.

This resource contains two hands-on lessons. One explores density in liquids and one explores density in solids. Students will practice reading skills for reading informational text including answering text dependent questions after the read the nonfiction article provided.

Students will used measurement and formulas to find the volume, mass and density of solid objects.

Interactive notebook flaps are included.
