Product Description
This lab provides students with the opportunity to work as a team to solve a skateboard company's dilemma!
You will need 60-80 minutes to complete this lab.
The lab comes with a diagram to help students understand the task without minimizing its challenge!
Although this lab stands on its own legs, you may want to "hook" the kids by showing them a video of skateboard production OR allow for research opportunities online.

Students will discover that they can find the volume of an irregular object by using water displacement. They subtract original water line (meniscus) from the displaced water line (meniscus line after object has been submerged) and voila! Volume of an irregular object!

Lab requires students to:
Work as a team
Create a question
Create a testable hypothesis
Write observations
Create a conclusion
Draw and label a diagram
