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.

Being a first year foreign language teacher came with many trials. However, having Lesson Planet has made my job so much easier :). I can always find a few lessons on any given concept I am introducing to my students. The neatest thing is the agility of use the site provides and the search for lessons by grade. I love that! (Especially since I teach 4th - 8th graders.) I need a variety of lessons that meets my students' needs at their level.
