Floating and sinking
Can you find some objects around your house/garden that float or sink?
Make a prediction (a really good guess) nd then carefully test them to see if they float or sink.
Below is a table which you might like to use to record your findings.
*Please be careful and ask an adult first before testing any objects!*
Choose a material that floats and use it to make a boat and test it to see if it will float across the water.
