The following activities target a middle school population although activities are approachable by more advanced elementary school students. The activities are also ideal for high school students to review basic concepts.
Mass: Learn how to measure the mass of an object using a triple beam balance
Mass vs. Weight: Mass and weight are often confused by many students. Learn the difference and try some challenging problems.
Volume: Measure volume using a graduated cylinder.
Density of a Solid: Learn to calculate the density of an unknown solid from knowing its mass and volume.
Density of a Liquid: Learn to calculate the density of an unknown liquid from knowing its mass and volume using a graduated cylinder and triple beam balance. Learn what a hydrometer is, and what it can do.
Density Challenge: Great page for gifted and talented students! Some excellent challenging problems.
Assessment: Twenty questions on mass, volume and density (two levels of difficulty). Your test is marked online.
Science Project Ideas: Ideas for science projects using mass, volume and density concepts learned from this module.
Mass Volume Density Lab Exercise: Problem: What is the relationship between water pressure and depth of water?
An Integrated Math Science and Art (STEAM) Activity- Mass, Volume Density Activity using the Gates Project from Central Park NYC.
