Year 2 have been exploring floating and sinking over the past few weeks. This week the children were able to test their ideas using a range of objects.
Challenge 1 – how do you make an orange sink?
Challenge 2 – how can you use salt to make an egg float?
Challenge 3 – which objects will sink and which objects will float? Why?
Challenge 4 – can you make play dough float?
“We all had a turn at each activity. I liked trying to make the orange sink and I was shocked when Miss Brown revealed the answer!”
“I loved trying to make my egg float and it worked. It was lots of fun making different shapes using playdough.”
