 How Dense Is It? An Introduction to Concrete Density and Aggregates The Materials Science and Technology Teacher's Workshop (MAST) provides this lesson plan for students learning about concrete. The purpose of the activity is to "determine the density of a concrete sample and to learn the effect of various types of aggregates on concrete's density." The experiment requires concrete samples which should be prepared ahead of time. Recipes for the concrete samples... http://matse1.matse.illinois.edu/concrete/g.html
 Make and Take Experiment The Materials Science and Technology Teacher's Workshop (MAST) provides this experiment on concrete in construction. The experiment focuses on developing an understanding of concrete as a construction material. Concrete products will be designed and constructed. Students will use two different sized containers that fit concentrically inside one another to create an enlarged crucible or planter... http://matse1.matse.illinois.edu/concrete/k.html
 What's the Matter: An Introduction to the Physical Properties of Matter The Materials Science and Technology Teacher's Workshop (MAST) provides this activity as an introduction to the physical properties of matter. The objective of this laboratory is to identify different classes of matter based on their physical properties, specifically the ingredients of concrete. The goal is to gain a deeper understanding of the physical properties of concrete. The different... http://matse1.matse.illinois.edu/concrete/f.html
 Hot and Cold pHun Experiment: Cement Hydration and pH Evolution During Curing The Materials Science and Technology Teacher's Workshop (MAST) provides this lesson plan for students learning about concrete. The class will "calculate the amount of water that reacts during hydration when cement becomes concrete under differing curing temperatures and observe the pH change that occurs in the curing process." The procedure is designed to be spread across three class days.... http://matse1.matse.illinois.edu/concrete/h.html
 The Basic Mix: A General Teacher's Guide for Concrete Preparation The Materials Science and Technology Teacher's Workshop (MAST) provides this guide for teachers on preparing concrete. Some very useful tips are included along with a graphic and a link to a video clip on making concrete. http://matse1.matse.illinois.edu/concrete/bm.html
