Floating and Sinking

Float or Sink Investigation

Can you find other objects to test in a bowl of water? Can you predict which objects with float and which will sink? Were your predictions correct? What materials are your objects made from?

Challenges:

  •  Can you draw the objects you tested in two sections - Floats and Sinks? Can you help to hear the initial sounds as your grown up labels each picture for you? 
  • Can you (and your grown up) make a boat that floats? Can your boat hold any objects (coins, small plastic animals)? How many can you get in there before it sinks?
  • Can you find simple instructions to make a paper boat? Does your paper boat float?
  • If you are FaceTiming (or similar) with your family and friends, can you tell them about your experiment and what you found out?
