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

This would be a great homeschool investigation as it does not require a group of students to conduct!
