This resource combines three other resources. The resource includes Four hands-on lessons, integrated activities with math/science and ELA/science, Close Reading Activities with nonfiction text articles, Response Pages and Interactive Notebook Flaps and Folds.
The following resources are included in the unit:
Density Integrated Science Math and ELA Lessons With Interactive Notebook Flaps
Lava Lamp Density Lesson
Density column Lesson NGSS Aligned
Each of these resources is aligned with NGSS for 5th grade and Middle School.
Develop a model to describe that matter is made of particles too small to be seen.
Make observations and measurements to identify materials based on their properties.
MS-PS1-1. Develop models to describe the atomic composition of simple molecules
and extended structures.
Analyze and interpret data on the properties of substances before and after the substances interact to determine if a chemical reaction has occurred.
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.
NGSS Science and Engineering Practices used in These Lessons:
1. Asking questions
2. Developing and using models
3. Planning and carrying out investigations
4. Analyzing and interpreting data
5. Using mathematics and computational thinking
6. Constructing explanations (
7. Engaging in argument from evidence
8. Obtaining, evaluating, and communicating information
