Directions: Print out a set of the two recording sheets for each student.
Set up a large bucket with water. Have objects listed on recording sheets available.
Each student should have a recording sheet. Have students make predictions about which objects may sink and which ones will float and have them record their prediction on the recording sheet.
As a group, one at a time, put the object in the water and observe what it did (sink or float), record observation in “what happened” column. Continue until all objects have been tested.
An additional worksheet has been provided where they can cut out a picture of each object and place it on the picture of what according to what it did…. Sink (glue on bottom of page) or float (glue picture of top of page)!
