Density, Mass, Volume and A Guy Named Archimedes

Eighth graders investigate the formula for density that Archimedes discovered. They work in centers to use an internet simulation program, make graphs, perform a mini-lab, solve a mini-mystery, and use the TI-34. They summarize the concepts about density, write questions they have about density and write one sentence about how mass and volume are related to density.

I am a first year homeschool mom. I found Lesson Planet and was impressed with the amount of resources that are available online! I have been able to find content that was age appropriate and relevant to the areas my 3 kids are studying. And knowing that these are plans created by teachers makes me confident in presenting the material to my children.
