This is a simple lab for students to find densities of various objects. I have included objects I use, but the objects can easily be changed for whatever you have on hand.
Main topics include: mass, volume, density.
Depending on the skill of your students with measuring mass and volume, this could be done in one or two days.
If you like this activity, you can follow these links to other lessons and activities in my density unit.
