In this lesson, students will be amazed by the fact that sometimes, liquids just won't mix because of their densities. Students will learn how to calculate density of several liquids and predict what will happen to them when they are all poured into the same container!
It might not turn out how you think it will, but THAT is the best part about education! This is a complete hands on activity, students might get messy (yay!), and they will have a fun time in the process.
In the extension activity, students will be able to make their own lava lamps (no electricity required) and they will have a great understanding of the principles behind the mystery of the lava lamp.
