Density Column

The density column explores density of liquids and solids. Children make their own columns and experiment with liquids and objects

 

The Density Column is a team based investigation. It helps children understand that density is a measure of how heavy something is for it size.  Objects and Liquids also have their own density. We investigate the different densities of liquids, some of which we make from scratch. We then take our liquids and, working in teams, we create a density column.

This density column can also help us to find out about the density of objects.This workshop can stand alone or work as a follow from our Hydrometer workshop
