Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Descartes' Diver

Pique interest in water pressure,Â demonstrate buoyancy, and explore water displacement concepts with a homemade Cartesian diver. You may want to change the name of the toy, however, as is is not documented the Rene Descartes actually...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### 2001 U.S. National Chemistry Olympiad Part III

Here is a comprehensive method for assessing chemistry learners' knowledge; have them approach two laboratory problems, plan their methods of solving each, and then actually carry out the experiments to find the answers. Both the...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Water Experiment

Here is a great lesson designed for very young scientists. In it, they act out the famous Aesops fable, "The Crow and the Pitcher." In doing this, they get to experience water displacement first-hand. Some terrific extension activities...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Buoyancy - Archimedes Principle

Weight of displaced liquid equals the weight of a floating object. Archimedes' Principle is carefully demonstrated and explained in this science video. The quality is acceptable and the instruction sound. Not exciting, but it is a...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Computing Volume Progression 4

This resource was written for the younger math learner, but finding the volume of an irregular solid is also a problem for algebra and geometry students. Based on Archimedesâ€™ Principle, one can calculate the volume of a stone by...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### What Floats Your Boat?

This open-ended boat building exercise is meant to be part of a three-instructional activity series on ships. Links to the other two lessons are included. This particular part is mostly a group lab activity in which they build a boat,...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Volume Lab

How can we find volume if it a shape isn't easy to measure? Investigate methods for determining this as the volume of regular and irregular objects is explored in several stations. Learners discover that when the standard formula for...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Displacement of Water

To calculate the volume of a stopper by using the method of water displacement., students work with a web animation. They observe the method and then click a button to gather information about the calculations for the stopper dropped in...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Move that Tower

Young scholars investigate ways to find the density of irregular shaped objects. In this physics activity, students calculate density usingÂ its mass and volume. They explain why some objects float or sink in water.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Volume by Water Displacement

In this measuring volume worksheet, students are given 2 diagrams for 24 problems. In the first diagram they are given a graduated cylinder with an initial volume of water. In the second diagram they are give a graduated cylinder with an...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Barge Building: What Floats Your Boat?

Young scholars construct aluminum foil boats that float while holding the greatest number of pennies. They investigate the concept of water displacement, record their results, and watch a Bill Nye video on buoyancy.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Mass and Density of an Irregular Solid

In this physics worksheet, students determine the density of irregular solids using water displacement method to complete 7 problems and short answer questions.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Volume

In this volume lab worksheet, students are guided through an experiment to determine volume of a liquid. Students determine water displacement. Students use a formula to calculate volume of a solid figure.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Rising Waters

Fourth graders rank balls by size from smallest to largest and from lightest to heaviest and then by how much they made the water rise. They then discuss why certain balls make the water rise higher than do other balls.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Concrete Canoes

Students explore and analyze the relationship of buoyancy and displacement needed to make an object float. They examine various boat designs, then design and build clay and aluminum boats that hold a cargo of marbles.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Water Displacement to Determine Volume

Sixth graders explore the water displacement method to determine the volume of solid objects such as rocks, nails, and marbles.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Volume of Irregular Objects

Fifth graders experiment using a Meniscus. In this volume lesson, 5th graders identify the volume of irregular objects using the process of water displacement. Students record data and draw conclusions.
