Today we experimented with objects to see whether they would sink or float.  We followed the following steps.

Floating and Sinking

  1. Predict if the object floats or sinks.

  2. Pour water into tub.

  3. Place an item into tub of water.

  4. Observe if the item floats or sinks.

  5. Record what you discover.

    View the clip to see why some objects sink and others float.
