Sink or Float?

This summer the girls had a lot of fun exploring water and how some of the toys that we played with in the water sank and how some floated.  My friend and I thought it would be fun to introduce the girls to a little Science Experiment to see what would sink and what would float.

First, the girls made their predictions.  They held the object and decided if it would sink or float.  Then they recorded their educated guess on the sheet with either an S for sink or a F for float.

Next, they recorded their results on their chart.

Finally, they counted how many items sank and how many items floated and recorded it at the bottom of their papers.
The girls really enjoyed this science project and even the Juliette and her friend were able to help by dropping the objects in the water.

We did this last year in MFW Adventures. Wish we'd have had your creative/cute sheet to document our finding on!!
