Science for Children – British Science Week

Science can be as simple as looking at the world around us and learning how things work.

We love this simple experiment for pre-schoolers which we found on Let’s Explore.

Can you and your child guess which items will sink or float?

This experiment is about making predictions, about density and about water.

Choose a number of objects from around the house and ask your children to predict whether they will sink or float!

It’s just about nice enough outside today to fill a bucket of water in the garden and play this outside, or you could even play this at bathtime.

We are sure it will lead to lots of questions about why objects sink or float so be ready with your answers!
