Sorry, this product is no longer available. Grades 6-12.
Develop an operational definition of density through hands-on experimentation. Students are provided with liquids of different viscosity and density and asked to use observation to predict the relative density of each liquid. They then test their predictions and develop an understanding of density by preparing sequences of the liquids layers. They are given values for the density of each liquid and asked to use this information to estimate the density of an unknown solid. Includes an optional experiment to determine the density of a fourth liquid. Kit contains six 60 ml bottles each of red, yellow, and green liquid, 48 density tubes, 96 end caps for density tubes, one vial of PVC beads, 28 student worksheets and guides, and one teacher’s guide with SDS. Designed to accommodate 24 students working in groups of four.
