Sink and Float

This week we introduced the concept of Sink and Float.  The children take various objects and drop in water to see if it sinks or floats. 
 This is also a multistep activity which involves putting on a smock, drying off each object after it is dropped in water and then classifying it on the sink or float tray.  When done, they put all objects back on silver tray to prepare for next person.
To extend this activity the afternoon children completed a more extensive experiment on the same topic. 

                                          Here we made predictions and recorded the results.
