Anchors Away

Type of Resource



From TeachEngineering - Students discover the relationship between an object's mass and the amount of space it takes up (its volume). As they create small boats using clay, they learn about the concept of displacement and how an object can float if it displaces enough water, and the concept of density and its relationship to mass and volume.
