Throw It At The Densest Student

| Learning | March 2, 2017

(This happens in an Earth Science class. We are honors students in eighth grade, and we have just started the class. We’re talking about density vs. size and weight, etc.)

Teacher: *holding up two rocks* “Which one do you think is denser?”

Student: “Uh, the bigger one?”

Teacher: “Okay, we’ll see about that.”

(She picks up the bigger rock and THROWS IT AT HIS HEAD. It bounces off silently. It was actually made of very lightweight Styrofoam!)

Teacher: “See? Size doesn’t always mean density. By the way, I like to do that at parent-teacher conferences. It scares parents.”
