The problem of many teachers throughout the world is not what to teach but how to teach what. In this paper, integrative strategy for effective teaching of density and pressure in senior secondary schools is proposed. The principles involved in integrative teaching approach are outlined. The paper also outlined some relevant students’ activities and tasks that can enrich classroom interaction for meaningful teaching and learning of density and pressure. The application of the strategy proposed in some demonstration experiments on density and pressure to guide both physics teachers and students are shown. The advantages of integrative teaching approach are outlined in this paper. Integrative approach is therefore recommended as an appropriate and effective teaching strategy for physics since the strategy stimulates simultaneously both the sense of vision and the sense of hearing.
