Properties of Matter
Delve into the properties of matter by doing experi¬ments with buoyancy, mass, and density. Based on experiments by the ancient Greek scientist Archimedes, we will learn how objects heavier than water, like a cruise ship, can float on water. Using precision scales and other lab equipment we will measure displacement, create a density col¬umn, and learn how heat and cold affect the buoyancy of liquids and gases.
This program is 50 mins. This program will be held in the Natural World Investigate Lab.
Science Curriculum Correlation(s): 6.P.2, 6.P.3
