Product Description
This fun exercise uses bite size chocolates to teach and reinforce the concept of Density. Using mini Snickers, Milky ways and Three Musketeer bars, students measure the mass and volume of the candy bar to calculate the density, Then, they place the candy bars in the water to see if the sink or float. The idea here being that if the density of the object (Snickers) is greater then the density of water, it will sink. If not (Three Musketeers), it will float.

Fun and effective method of introducing density to students. Works well with Middle School or Lower Skilled 9th grade students. Includes Lesson plan and Worksheet.
