Description:

Is there a difference in density between hot and cold water?In this activity, students will investigate whether the temperature of water affects its density. Students will place colored hot and cold water in a cup of room-temperature water to see that cold water sinks while hot water floats. Then they will use this experience to suggest how colored hot and cold water should be stacked to prevent mixing.
