Sink or float?

Does it sink? Does it float?

This is a fun one you can try in the garden, in the kitchen (if you're brave!) in the bath!

Here are some ideas for investigating sinking and floating

  • Fruit
  • Beach ball or inflated balloon
  • Flowers or leaves
  • Empty plastic bottles
  • Full plastic bottles
  • A sock (it'll float but then sink as it absorbs the water. Unless it really smells then it might just float away)
  • The soap! it'll probably sink and you should definitely get an award if you can pick it up first time!
  • Anything and everything that you don't mind getting wet!
