Density

For Students 6th - 8th
Certain things just do not mix, including liquids of varying densities. Learners collect data to determine the densities of several liquids. They then use the density information to predict the type of liquid.
Lesson Planet

Immiscible Liquids and Density

For Teachers 3rd - 6th
Students will make a lava lamp. In this density lesson, students will combine water and oil and make observations, then add salt to the oil and observe the oil sink, then float again when the salt dissolves in the water.
Lesson Planet

Heat and Density

For Teachers 9th
Ninth graders are introduced to the concepts of density and convection/conduction through demonstrations, notes and activities. They are exposed to real-world examples to model the processes that move and shape Earth's surface. Pupils...

Convection Currents

For Teachers 7th - 9th
Students study tectonic plates by using the concept of convection.  In this investigative instructional activity students observe a demonstration then make their own convection current.

Ocean Convection

For Teachers 6th - 10th
Students study convection and ocean currents.  In this oceans lesson students write a letter and complete an activity. 
Lesson Planet

Convection

For Teachers 5th - 8th
Students explore the term convection and give examples of convection in life.  In this investigative lesson students explain and explore the term convection.
