Why Lesson Planet?
Students explore the concept of density. In this density lesson plan, students determine the density of a crown and a sample of clay. They hypothesize about the densities of 4 liquids they are given including molasses, cooking oil, a red solution and a blue solution. Students mix the liquids and determine their densities in relation to each other. Students then predict the densities of objects and drop them into their layered solutions. Students summarize their results.
