### Description

Mass, Volume, Density, and Buoyancy - A 5E Lesson Bundle for both middle and high school students. This bundle will fit your classroom whether you're teaching middle or high school as you can choose between two lessons, each geared towards a certain grade range.

Everything you need in one tidy package. This fully-editable, no prep bundle follows the 5E model and provides step-by-step instructions on how to implement it in your classroom. Each included resource is either completely or almost completely self-contained meaning little to no classroom materials are needed. This bundle contains a mix of digital and paper-based resources and encourages collaboration and creativity at every turn.

Since 5E lessons provide differentiated instruction in their very nature, your students will complete the unit with a deep understanding of:

• Mass

• Mass vs. weight

• Area

• Volume

• Density

• Archimedes

• Buoyancy

• Water

• Icebergs

Your students will also confront and overcome the following misconceptions.

• Mass and weight are the same thing.

• The only way to find area of a given shape is length x width

• Volume can be found by determining the area of a single face on a prism and multiplying that number by the total number of faces.

• Solid phases of substances are always denser than their liquid phases.

• Heavy objects sink and light objects float.

• Large objects sink.

How does the 5E model facilitate learning?

• It emphasizes inquiry, critical thinking, and the process of science

• Its success is backed by countless scientific studies that demonstrate its effectiveness

• It’s built around the idea that humans construct knowledge and meaning from their learning experiences. That they build upon their prior knowledge and to be effective, learning needs to be active and allow the participants to construct new knowledge from their experiences

----------------------------------

------------------------------------------------------------

The NRC's How People Learn has synthesized decades of research across many different disciplines about how people learn. Key findings from that synthesis include the following. First, students (people) must be interested and engaged in what they are learning and find it useful and meaningful. Second, students (people) must be actively involved in the process of teaching and learning, comparing new information to previous ideas, constructing new understandings, and quite simply changing their own minds about how the world works. And third, students (people) need opportunities to apply what they have learned to new situations, to check the completeness of their understanding, and to evaluate their own learning for themselves. (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2931660/)

By incorporating this 5E lesson, you will provide your students with a meaningful and coherent way of learning that best suits their needs. You will also utilize technology in a way that creates order and promotes understanding.

------------------------------------------------------------

The follow 5E lessons are currently included or will be added shortly. Please note that I will be increasing the number of lessons substantially over the next month. Purchase now before the price goes up.

Explore - Mass, Volume, Density, & Buoyancy

This fully editable Lab Station Activity on Mass, Volume, Density, & Buoyancy is meant to get your students out of their seats and engaged in the content. This activity was designed for Middle School science students.

Each station not only offers a unique opportunity to test your students' knowledge (offer an opinion, answer questions based on a video or reading, draw, etc.) but also provides a fantastic learning opportunity where your kids are learning through assessment. Each station comes with a description card while some also contain more detailed instructions, a reading, questions to answer, etc. Students are equipped with a recording sheet (passport) to write their answers. There is almost no prep for you. Simply print the cards, lay them out around the room and you're all set. An answer key is also provided where applicable.

**This resource is fully editable for your convenience**

This resource covers the following topics:

- Mass vs. weight

- Weight on other planets and the moon

- Volume

- Buoyancy

- Icebergs

----------------------------------------------

Bonus Activities: To ensure your students don’t have any downtime between stations, your lab also includes a 10-word word scramble and word search, both with an answer key. You can use them as part of their mark, as a bonus so it’s not mandatory, etc. However you choose to use it, it will ensure that your students are always busy and never idle. Note: For stronger classes, I give the word scramble and for weaker ones, the word search.

-----------------------------------------------

How do the Lab Stations work? Each station is specially designed to be a unique complement to the material while at the same time, provide a valuable learning experience. Below is an overview of how each station works. In your activity, each will be tailored to the specific content.

Station 1: Get Hands-On – using their creative skills, students are required to draw or build.

Station 2: Research – using a classroom computer or their own device, students must research a specific question/issue surrounding the topic.

Station 3: Explain yourself – students write down an opinion to a question in paragraph form.

Station 4: Rest Station - students can use this time to catch up on work they didn't have time to complete at a previous station or prepare themselves for an upcoming one.

Station 5 - Applicability reading – students read a short passage from an article, website, etc. which directly connects the classroom content to a real life application.

Station 6: Test your knowledge – students answer 5 multiple choice questions then provide a written explanation for how/why they came to their conclusions.

Station 7: Learn from the expert – using a classroom computer or their own device, students must watch a short video clip and answer the associated questions. They may stop, rewind and restart as often as they like during the time frame.

Station 8 - Rest Station.

Station 9: Become the question master – Students must create 2 multiple-choice questions, 2 true/false questions and 1 short answer question. Students must also supply the answers.

These station cards are meant to be used as a lab activity but can also be utilized in a review task before a test or a quiz. Used either way, your students will love it! I know mine do and I'm telling you from first-hand experience as I've used this activity in my own class.
