This exploration is a great way to get students thinking about complex topics. The density tower blows away students of all ages. I use this resource as jumping off point to my lessons in density, but it can be developed further. For example, you could have the students calculate the density of each substance, predict their order based on their densities, and try to prove which substances were used.
Instructions, material list, procedure, and expected outcome are included.
