Exploring Density

Our focus in class last week was density. My students worked on creating a foldable from Middle School Science.  This is probably the best density foldable I've ever used.  I can see my students using it often.  For measuring density and using it as an identification property, we participated in a density cube lab.  Our final density lesson was to create a density column and to watch a Steve Spangler video of the Amazing 9 Layer Density Tower.  I didn't have all of the components to do the 9 layer, but we did make a 6 layer column together instead.
