Students explore buoyancy and displacement. In this Archimedes Principle science lesson, students predict which household items will float and which will sink, then test them in water. Students watch a video about Archimedes Principle, then define and explain buoyancy and displacement. Students design a boat out of aluminum foil using the principles they have learned, competing to create a boat that will hold the most cargo.
Young scholars produce an object analysis of 'The Champion Single Scull'. They begin with description, proceeding to deduction, and finally providing speculation by interpreting the outward evidence of culture.

They develop maps of the area and locate landmarks of the area. To end the instructional activity, they research the contributions of the Native American groups of the four corners region and examine artifacts.
Students determine how to determine the density of an object or material that has a simple geometric shape. They apply the method for determining density to a more complex geometric shape. They complete an experiment with items that sink or float in water, develop a scatter plot, and determine densities using the graph.
Students read paragraphs and study pictures to learn about museums and in particular the Musee' d'Orsay. In this museum study instructional activity, students study the range of activities found in a museum and the characteristics common to all museums. Students also study the characteristics of the Musee' d'Orsay.
