This week Year 1 used their scientific enquiry and investigation skills to test floating and sinking for our new topic Fish and Ships.
We tested different materials to see whether they would float or sink in water. We talked about the objects and talked about what they were made from. We also discussed whether the objects were big or small and light or heavy. Afterwards, we decided in groups whether the item would sink or float.
We even learned a very scientific word ‘density.’ The experiment caused some really interesting discussions and we even tested the plates and bowls our items were kept in!
