The Role of Density in Sinking or Floating: Relational Causality

Students watch the teacher do a demonstration of density with diet and regular soda. Note: try this first, as different types of artificial sweetener have different densities. Students discuss density and volume. They discuss "Relational Causality." Students use diagrams to show how heating a thermometer is similar and different to the soda can density experiment.
