Motion in the OceanLesson Planet
6th - 8th CCSS: Adaptable
New ReviewHow do temperature changes affect ocean currents? Scholars explore convection currents by demonstrating the flow of water in a baking dish. They use ice, heat, and food coloring to see currents. Then, they draw conclusions about their...
Ocean and Great Lakes Literacy: Principle 1Lesson Planet
3rd - 12th
Is your current lesson plan for salt and freshwater literacy leaving you high and dry? If so, dive into part one of a seven-part series that explores the physical features of Earth's salt and freshwater sources. Junior hydrologists...
The Density of Liquids and SolidsLesson Planet
9th - Higher Ed CCSS: Adaptable
There are underwater rivers that flow on the ocean floor thanks to a difference in density. Scholars learn about the density in both liquids and solids in the second lesson of an 11-part series. They then determine the density of water,...
Determination of the Density of LiquidsLesson Planet
9th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Do you know how to make liquids float or sink? Pupils find the density of three different liquids in the ninth lesson of an 11-part series. They must find the mass and volume first and then apply the formula. Once they master this,...
Temperature Affects DensityLesson Planet
6th - 8th CCSS: Designed
Different substances can have different densities, but can the same substance have different densities? Lesson explores the effect of temperature on the density of water. Extension idea connects the concept of how melting ice in lakes...
Density: Sink and Float for LiquidsLesson Planet
6th - 8th CCSS: Designed
We don't think of liquids as floating typically, but a quick look at any oil spill tells a different story. Lesson explores various densities of liquids and why this fact is important. After observing the density variation, scholars...
That Sinking Feeling: Density Currents LabLesson Planet
6th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Seawater density varies depending upon your location, which means that ships float higher or lower in the ocean depending upon their location as well. In a hands-on activity, individuals explore the density of ocean water. In groups,...
Density Column Lab - Part 2Lesson Planet
7th - 9th CCSS: Designed
Groups suspend objects within layers of liquids to determine the densities of different liquids and compare them to the densities of objects calculated in Part 1. The groups then carefully test their calculations by layering the liquids...
Teacher's Guide For: Water Temperature and Salinity ExperimentLesson Planet
4th - 5th
Students experiment with water density, temperature and salinity. In this water activity, students observe how the coldest water sinks to the bottom of a test tube, and how saltwater sinks in comparison to freshwater.
