Through a hands-on science experiment, students will discover different objects that sink or float in water. A rubric is used to assess students based on their participation in the lesson. An anticipatory set is used to teach students about prediction, by circling the objects he/she thinks will sink. After completing the experiment, the same worksheet is used as an exit ticket. Students will color the sinking objects blue and the floating objects green.
Other resources required for the lesson:
Match box cars
Miniature plastic cups
