Product Description
In this minds-on, hands-on activity students use the concept of density to figure out whether the solar system that we inhabit is arranged in an orderly fashion, and how gravity plays a role.

In this lab students will measure the density of common household objects using the immersion method, they will then apply that understanding to determine the densities of all 8 planets. They graph and then ultimately form their scientific explanation using the claims, evidence and reasoning framework.

Requires students to be able to work with scientific notation.

**HS-ESS1-6**
Apply scientific reasoning and evidence from ancient Earth materials, meteorites, and other planetary surfaces to construct an account of Earth’s formation and early history.
