Floating and Sinking

We are learning about floating and sinking.

We watched this video to get our brains thinking.

We tried to think of all....
  • the things that float
  • the things that sink
We then did an investigation to find out if certain items would float or sink.
First we made a prediction for each item - Float or Sink?
Then we observed what happened when the item was dropped in the water.

What do you think?
  • A feather?
  • A small wooden block?
  • A stone?
  • A light bulb?
  • A walnut shell?
  • A metal clip
