Remember: As long as you act like a scientist when we do science, you will be treated like a scientist and conduct investigations. If not, you get to watch the rest of us do science.

Learning Objective:

Each pure substance has characteristic physical properties like density (for any bulk quantity under given conditions) that can be used to identify it.

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner; Add to your Table of Contents- “Density Cubes p.59” (Right Side); Get out your science notebook and head page 58 properly with “Density Cube-Observations-2/4/16″
  2. Animation/Modeling– How to measure volume & mass of a cube (Answer Questions 2-6 in cooperative table group)
  3. Observation investigation– Can you use density to identify eight cubes made of different materials? Model procedure. Conduct the investigation!
  4. Notebook– Trim & tape Demonstration Questions 1-6 to page 58
