Wow Wednesday - Floating and Sinking Investigation

Date: 4th Mar 2020 @ 7:09pm

This week for our Wow Wednesday session we have been exploring the concept of floating and sinking. The children investigated what things float or sink when added to water. We have been making predictions and testing these out to gather results. Some of the children's reasoning has really impressed me. Isabella said "things float when they have air in them. When I went swimming I had arm bands and they were blown up with air, this made me float" Daniel said "if things are heavy they sink - like the rock and the coin". Take a look at some of our photos of us in action!
