- Flinn Scientfic Block set (link) & Resources/Handout (pdf)
- Triple Beam Balance
- Worksheet to collect data (pdf)
For this activity, I used the set of density blocks from Flinn Scientific. Each group of students had 6 blocks made of the same material. Their challenge was to identify the material using their measurement skills to calculate the mass, volume, and density of each block. This activity also reinforced the concept that the density of an object is constant.
