Floating and sinking Jan 2015

This activity is linked to the story Oliver's Fruit Salad.  As part of Understanding the World: The World (science) the children used fruits to investigate floating and sinking.  They were encouraged to predict which fruits they thought would float/sink and why (Communication and Language - explaining their thought, ideas and understanding).  Then they investigated to find out.  They used a simple recording grid to show the results.  The children considered the weight and size of the fruits as a factor to whether or not it would float or sink.
