Density Science Experiment
I decided to set out an experiment on density and matter for their first after school science lesson.
The directions on how to set up and run the experiment are on page 57 of Hands-On Science and Math: Fun, Fascinating Activities for Young Children.
We talked about the vocabulary
Then the children poured the liquids in and observed.
We discussed the results.
I handed them their science journals and asked them to draw and label the final outcome. I encouraged them to write a few sentences about the experiment using some of the vocabulary.
