Density Block I: Constant Volume
Developed by middle school teacher Elliott Parivar, this kit lets students examine mass vs. volume in oak, pine, three pieces of PVC, aluminum, copper, steel, and brass. Students will observe that although each block is the same size, the mass of each block is different because the density of each substance is different. Students can also devise their own experiments to compare the characteristics of each specimen.
