In the 2nd packet of the "Science Kids" series, students will do hands-on investigations to help them learn the concepts of buoyancy and water displacement. They will also begin to understand that the size and shape of an object affects its ability to float.
The “Science Kids” series of packets is intended to help teachers implement developmentally appropriate, hands-on science activities for children in Preschool, Kindergarten and the early grades. The activities in these packets are based on the scientific method and encourage inquiry-based learning.
Included in this packet are:
★Explanation of the Scientific Method for teachers
★Five sinking and floating investigations, with directions and recording sheets
★Guide for helping students plan their own individual investigations
★Guides for forming hypotheses and reflecting on students' learning
★Guide for sharing student learning
★Tips and helpful suggestions
