Choose a selection of different materials and test whether they float or sink. (the bath or sink is a good place to test this). The objects could include things such as rocks, plastic bottles, rubber bands etc.

 

Once you have collected some different items, predict (make a guess) at whether you think they will float or sink.

Why do you think they will float?

Why do you think they will sink?

 

Now, test your objects.

 

Conclusion – were your predictions, right? Did any surprise you?

Why do you think they floated/sank?

 

If you would like to, you could write your predictions and conclusions down.
