Determining Density via Water Displacement
http://www.explorele...
This website allows students to interact to determine the density of objects based on the amount of displaced water using Archimedes' principle by dropping objects in a beaker that is filled with water and measure the water that flows over the edge. Requires flashplayer.

Density
http://phet.colorado...
Why do objects like wood float in water? Does it depend on size? Create a custom object to explore the effects of mass and volume on density. Can you discover the relationship? Use the scale to measure the mass of an object, then hold the object under water to measure its volume. Can you identify all the mystery objects?

Seven-Layer Density Column
http://www.stevespan...
Students measure and stack 7 liquids into layers like a "science burrito". This experiment proves that liquids that weigh more (which have a higher density) will sink. Students will make a hypotheses about each liquid.
