Product Description
Measurement is an excellent way to teach the scientific method in a back to school science unit for elementary and middle school students. This science lab activity teaches the difference between independent and dependent variables as students use both graduated cylinders and balances to make measurements of three liquids. The results can be incorporated into an interactive science notebook. Students compare the masses of the same volumes of water and two common grocery-store liquids in this hands-on, wet lab. This activity can serve as an introduction to density and the fact that the same volume of different liquids will have different masses.

The bar graph (with custom graph paper) is an excellent math component.

IMPORTANT: There is more challenging version of this experiment for middle school students that involves calculating density:

Density of Water

Other hands-on activities to practice the use of the graduated cylinder.
