Product Description
This lab is a fun exploration-based activity that allows students to learning about archimedes principle with a fun and hands-on approach. The only supplies you need are pennies, aluminum foil and buckets of water. This is a good mini activity to do after teaching about archimedes principle and buoyancy etc. I have made this mini-lab a half sheet with two on the same page to limit the copies you will need! WARNING- students tend to love this activity and want to make multiple ships, making them better each time!! They also tend to forget that they are learning and try to extend the activity!! They have not been taken over by alien species- they are just under the influence of sever-science-fun! :)
