2. Describe density as a property of matter

3. Use deductive reasoning to explain how to make a golf ball sink or float in water  

S.IP.07.11 / P.PM.07.24 / S.IP.07.12 / S.RS.07.15

Today in Class:

1.  Students read pp. 10-13, and used one of our Reading Strategies

2.  Students were put into groups and you were given the task of setting up an experiment to try to make a golf ball float (as you saw the demo. on Monday).  You and your group should have written the Hypothesis, Gather Information. Materials and Procedure after you brainstormed ideas of how you would make the golf ball float in a tennis ball container that contained water!

3.   Sticky Note PoP!  Quiz 🙂


No formal HW, but some students discussed setting up trials at home to see if they could make a golf ball float.  Good luck!  🙂
