We began our new Science unit today, called Boats and Buoyancy. One of the “I Can” statements included in this unit is I know which materiasl will sink in water and those that will float. So we did a demonstration in which the 2Js were given a list of materials and they had to predict which ones would float and which ones would sink. After each prediction, we tested the material in a pot of water, then recorded our observation. To reinforce our knowledge of which materials floated and sunk, we also created a poster to go illustrate our new knowledge. Below is a slide show of our experiment.
Please comment something that surprised you during our experiment!
