Density has never been more delicious: A high school lesson plan.

Chemistry/Physical Science Activity – Grades 9-12

Density lesson plan

You know your students are having a good day in science when the most common question you hear is, “Can we eat these when we’re done?” That’s what can happen when you combine chemistry with one of America’s most loved candies.

This 45-minute high-school activity is an easy and appetizing introduction to calculating density – and all you need are some Tootsie Rolls, a graduated cylinder, a balance or scale, and some weighing paper.
