The Density of Coins

Students conduct a science experiment where they will learn that the different denominations have characteristic densities that can be used to help identify the type of coin being used. They work in groups to create a data table where they will include columns for coin type, mass, volume and density.

I have been told by seasoned educators not to "re-invent the wheel" when coming up with ideas for lessons. So true!! Lesson Planet has a wealth of sources and ideas from some of the greatest teaching minds that are out there...what a blessing to have a resource such as Lesson Planet, to turn to. I am even planning to contribute a lesson or two myself. My daughter is in a teacher education program and I have introduced her to the "Planet". We're spreading the news!
