Does it Sink or Float?

Investigating materials

Year 1 have been investigating a range of materials in Science over the last two weeks.

Throughout the topic we have been examining the different properties of materials, how we can describe them as well as where we can find these materials in everyday life. Part of our study has centered around sorting objects into different groups based on their properties but this week we decided to take our research one step further. 

The grand idea centered around whether different objects would sink or swim! We tested a variety of materials after making a prediction about each and then summarised our results at the end.
