Density Day 3 or 4: Making Density Visual With Particle Model Drawings

Unit 6: Density
Lesson 7 of 8

Objective: SWBAT: Represent the relative density of each cube in the PhET simulations with molecular drawings

Big Idea: Bringing learning alive with visuals is especially important when students are developing a deep understanding of density. In this lesson, students will draw molecules to help explain why some cubes sink or float, based on their density.
