Funtivity Friday - .Science Experiment: Does It Float?

Here is a fun and easy science experiment that is great for little kids since it is so simple to perform.

What you will need:


A large bowl or container
Common household objects that will be not be ruined when submerged in water
Paper
A writing utensil

1) Fill the bowl with water.

2) On the piece of paper, make a column for objects that float and one for objects that don't float.

2) Select an object.

3) Guess if you think the object will float.

4) Submerge the object in the water.

5) Write it down under the correct column depending on whether it floated or didn't.

6) Repeat for all objects.

If your children are younger, you may not necessarily want to write down what floats and what doesn't but just notice and point it out to your child if they are very young and let them point it out to you if they are slightly older. If your children are older you may want to discuss your results and talk about why some objects may float and some may not.

Here are some objects we found that float
Here are some objects we found that don't float
Enjoy!

Tune in Sunday for this week's Sunday Scoop.
