Sinking and Floating Senior Infants

  1. We estimated how much water would half fill the bucket. We guessed 4 jugs and it took 5!
  2. Then we estimated which items which would sink and float. The apple floated when we guessed it would sink.
  3. We placed a sphere (ball) of play doo into the water and it sank.
  4. Then we made a boat out of the same ball of play doo and it floated.
  5. Then we guessed how many marbles it would take to sink the boat. We guessed 4 and it only took 2.
  6. We really enjoyed our science and getting wet.
