This is a full lesson plan on the concept of density. It includes 2 activities where students calculate the density of liquids and solids.This lesson plan will guide you through the entire lesson with follow up questions and answer keys to help you teach your students along the way.
The first activity has students measure and calculate 3 different volumes of water to determine that density is constant and does not change. The density of water is 1 g/cm3 no matter the volume is discovered by students by completing the first activity.
Students then test the density of solid objects to see if the same rules applies in the second activity.
Students will use the d=m/v mathematical equation during this process. I love to use these 2 activities with my students because it helps to reinforce the concept of density as a property of matter,
