TE Activity: Determining Densities

Young scholars determine how to determine the density of an object or material that has a simple geometric shape. They apply the method for determining density to a more complex geometric shape. They complete an experiment with items that sink or float in water, develop a scatter plot, and determine densities using the graph.

As a 'rookie' (first-year) teacher, time is really in short supply! Lesson Planet has given me lots of help making my lessons more engaging for all my students without spending time 'reinventing the wheel!'
