Density Phenomena-Using the Concept of Density

Students investigate the concept of density by observing demonstrations. In this density lesson plan, students make observations while the teacher demonstrates the Cartesian diver, a density column, a candle trough, a wave bottle, an inverse wave bottle, a U-tube density trick, convection currents and floating balloons. Students take notes and explain their observations for three of the demonstrations.

I am in my last year of graduate school, and having to do observation, and student teaching has been great. Lesson Planet was one of the sites mentioned one day, since then I've gain so many new creative ideas through the lessons. Thank you Lesson Planet
