This is a fun, quick and easy to use pack with everything you need to explore Floating and Sinking.

This is a pack of activities, worksheets, checklists, flip book, crown, word bank words and labels and a fun little make a boat book for Kindergarten, Year 1 and Year 2. It is made to go hand in hand with a Science Centre to allow chn. to test floating and sinking of different objects.
