Raiders of the Lost Ark: Throw Me the Idol
  • Science → Physical Science → Density

In an attempt to collect the Golden Idol, Indiana takes the idol and replaces it with a bag of sand the same size. That doesn't work, as the traps still activate, and Jones needs to escape quickly or meet his fate.

Public Discussion Questions

  1. Why didn't the sand work when Indiana Jones replaced the gold statue?
  2. Do you believe the statue was made of solid gold. Why or why not? What is your evidence?
