Float or Sink? Infants 3 years old

Young children love experimenting, so the students from infants 3 years were very excited about taking part in a ‘Float or Sink’ experiment.  First we collected different objects from outside and around our classroom. Then one at a time the children dropped each item into the tub of water.  This was done with great excitement!

Later we discussed what we had learnt. The heavy objects sink, whilst the light objects float.

It’s a very simple activity but it allowed the children to practise the important steps in the scientific process: predicting, experimenting and checking  conclusions. Here are the children documenting the results.

Let’s not forget that we had great fun getting wet too!
