This printable word scramble puzzle features 18 density and buoyancy vocabulary words. This goes with the articles I wrote earlier this week to study this topic. I like to use science printables to help reinforce vocabulary and concepts. Puzzles like these are much more fun than just trying to memorize words.
The letters in the vocabulary words in this puzzle are scrambled. The definitions are provided as clues. The students must unscramble each word. This reinforces the words and definitions and helps them learn to spell the vocabulary. It includes basic words and some phrases.
This puzzle would make a good follow up to a lesson dedicated to buoyancy. If your students have studied these words in advance, they should be able to do the puzzle. It includes a colorful bubble graphic which is light enough to print well in black and white also.
Density and Buoyancy Vocabulary
The vocabulary words used in this printable puzzle are:
- buoyant force
- Archimedes’ principle
- physical property
- rectangular solid
- atmospheric pressure
- negative buoyancy
- positive buoyancy
- neutral buoyancy
- net force
If you think your students will find the puzzle too difficult, give them the list of words also. It’s not cheating and it will still help them learn the ideas.This article is part of the Density and Buoyancy series. See the list below for links to the other articles in this series.
