This activity is a fun way for students to practice basic density calculations (p=m/v) while building in some critical thinking skills as well. Students are provided a series of clues about 7 different colored boxes and students need to determine which of the seven provided masses, volumes, and densities is connected tot hat color box.
For example, "The density of water is 1.0 grams per cubic cm. If the orange object was placed in water, it would float."
There is a table for students to fill out which makes sure they determine the mass, volume, and density of each box. This could be a great in class assignment, homework, or formative assessment on density calculations.
