Does it float or sink? 


Collect items from around the home (safe to go in water) and take them to a sink, or empty box of water.    

Ask the children what does 'float' mean? and what does 'sink' mean? 


Can you make your own predictions about which items will float in the water and which will sink? 

Have a go and place the items into the water, one at a time!   

Can you write a list of the items that have floated, and a list of items that sank.  :)
