This easy-to-use activity takes about 45 minutes to an hour. Prepare the materials as seen in the student recording sheet (or adapt it to suit your own needs), and partner children up to explore what sinks or floats.A follow-up activity can include a discussion or writing about what happened. Students are sure to remember what happened since they explored the stations themselves.
