Density Shapes Kit
Kit Number: 7048
Featuring four shape types (cone, cylinders, spheres, and cubes) as well as halves, thirds, and quarters thereof, this kit dives into volume, shape, and density for an integrated lesson. The kit contains multiple sizes and densities of cones and cylinders to reinforce density as the determining factor for whether or not the shape will float when placed in water and will help in debunking the misconception that when a shape is cut in half the density is also cut in half. Guide students or let them explore!
Note - each brand and color of filament varies slightly in density. Be sure to test this kit before using it with your students. You may have to adjust our suggested print settings depending on your filament and printer! We also suggest using this as a chance to discuss the limitations of the experiment with regard to printer error, measurement error, etc, that could generate somewhat imprecise results.
