SCIENCE ROCKS at West DeFuniak Elementary! Mrs. Katie Adams’ fourth grade studied the properties of matter, one being density. Groups created a density tower to showcase five layers of different liquids. Students soon discovered liquids have different densities, therefore creating a layering effect with the heaviest liquid on the bottom. To further test density, students dropped various items into their density towers to compare the density of that item to the surrounding liquid. Through discovery, students were able to explain why different objects floated, while others sank.
