Product Description

Scientific Method and Buoyant Boats- use the scientific method to learn about the concepts of buoyancy, capacity, density, and Archimedes' Principle while being engineers that design and test different boats, the weight they hold and different liquids.

This resource contains two investigations. One investigation is led by you as a guided experiment. Students gain exposure to new concepts, and practice following the scientific method as the teacher models quality questioning, writing and procedural techniques.

Then, the second experiment releases some of the independence to the kids as they design their own investigation to learn about different boat construction materials and how different liquids affect whether objects sink or float.

This resource includes:

directions

materials list

vocabulary list

vocabulary word cards

scientific method word cards

Density Formula Poster

Water Displacement poster

Changing only 1 variable poster

Group investigation sheets

Independent student investigation sheets

Concepts covered include:

density

capacity

mass

surface area

weight distribution

Archimedes' Principle

variables

following the scientific method

measurement

graphing

and more!

Please download the preview to see more specifics on what this resource includes.

This product can also be purchased at a discount as a part of a scientific method resource bundle:

Scientific Method Bundle- Planes, Boats and Cars
