Why Lesson Planet?
Using a graduated cylinder and triple beam balance, middle schoolers measure the volume and mass of four different liquids. They use the values to compute densities. In a separate activity, they experiment with Cartesian divers and learn how pressure affects density.

- Activity Sheet 2: How Does a Cartesian Diver Both Float and Sink?
- Discussion Sheet 1: How Do the 4 Different Liquids Separate?
