The Buoyance Challenge! Lesson Plan
Students will be introduced to the concepts of mass, volume, density and buoyancy. As students begin to understand the fundamental relationships of these four concepts, they will be asked to predict the density of a number of common objects and if they will float or sink in water. Students will complete the lesson by writing a report in Word that incorporates a spreadsheet and explains why certain objects float while other objects sink.
