Density-Qualitative and Quantitative

Students investigate density using film canisters filled with different density materials and larger objects of varying density. In this density lesson plan, students discuss the concept of density and rank film containers from dense to least dense. They also arrange the larger objects in decreasing order of density. Students measure density by measuring mass and volume of each object. Students find volumes of objects using Archimedes method and by calculating volumes using formulas.
