Science Activities on Density

Most people have heard of the "Dancing Raisins", but have you ever seen raisins float?

Illustrate density, the measurement of mass, by conducing a few simple projects with items found around the home.

"Density of Liquids" will compare water, oil, and maple syrup, and discuss why the liquids don't mix. Most people have heard of the "Dancing Rains"- but did you know you could make raisins float? "Floating Raisins" will show you why water wings help children stay afloat in pools, and "Comparing Size & Density" will use soap to prove an important density concept- weight doesn't necessarily indicate that something is more dense. Follow the link below for three activities that teach about density.
