Will your toy sink or float? This experiment is fun for all ages.

How We Did It

Sink or Float?
We gathered small toys and objects that we wanted to experiment with. Will they sink or float? Drop one object in the bowl of water at a time.
Sink or Float?
After you drop it in to find out if it sinks or floats, take it out and put it in the right pile. We used two containers to sort the items.
Sink or Float?
Half way through the experiment, we started making predictions/guesses about whether we thought it would sink or float before we put it in the bowl. So fun!
Sink or Float?
Right when we got done, he wanted to do it again. We used some of the same objects and hunted for new ones to try as well. I liked using the different containers to sort the objects. Next time I will put a towel on the floor underneath the bowl of water.
