Students were first introduced to the topic of density and then presented with a problem...How could they use available lab equipment (balance, rulers, and graduated cylinder) to determine the density of an object? Students designed their own procedures for the lab and then used the available lab equipment to accurately measure and calculate the density of a rock, a block, and tap water. Using their density calculations, students predicted how their block would behave (float or sink) when placed in a beaker of water. They then tested their predictions by placing the blocks into water.
