This is an engaging lab to apply the concepts students are learning about density. You will need a set of density cubes for this lab. My students work in groups to identify the substances provided. They compare their calculations with the provided accepted values. After the lab, students can either complete the CER (claim, evidence, and reasoning) graphic organizer connecting density concepts to solving crimes, or they can write a formal report.
This product includes:
•Lab sheet with data tables
•Connections to percent error, accuracy, and precision
•Accepted values for density
•CER graphic organizer as a follow-up activity
•Pre-lesson for scientific writing
•Peer Review Gallery Walk Rubrics
•Guidelines for writing formal lab reports
This lab is suitable for either an introduction to density for chemistry or for physical science courses.
I truly appreciate your purchase and would love to get your feedback on the product. I'm always looking for ways to improve on my work. Also, FOLLOW ME! I'm just building this store and developing new ideas and get so encouraged by my followers :) Thank you!
