Density (Solids)

Elementary and middle school physical science learners explore density in a hands-on activity. They measure the mass and calculate the volume of different metal and wood blocks. From these two values, they compute the density for each. This is a classic lab activity, important for all of the branches of science. This resource provides everything you need to teach density with ease: instructor notes, grading rubric, materials and procedures, and a student activity sheet.
