Create a cool layered density column, discuss sinking and floating, and learn the tale of Archimedes and the Golden Crown.
Science Starts With: Discovering Density introduces students Grades K-2 to the concepts of density, volume, and mass using interactive demonstrations and colorful stories!
Explore why certain objects sink or float, how shape and composition affect buoyancy, and see displacement in action through real-world examples.
Students will be fascinated as they watch the creation of a layered density column, learning why oil and other household liquids float on water!
Last, they will hear the tale of Archimedes and the Golden Crown, which teaches that objects of the same mass can come in different shapes.
Make challenging concepts fun and easy when you discover density with us!
