Our theme last week was transportation and we did a couple of science activities during the week.
One day we did a “What sank the boat” experiment. Before we did it Hailey guessed how many of each object it would take to sink the boat.
This was our “boat.”
Testing to see how many blocks it would take to sink the boat.
Our final results.
Another day we did this floating/sinking experiment. First Hailey made predictions about what she thought would happen. Then we put a ball of playdough into the water to see if it would sink or float.
Then I formed that same ball of playdough into a boat shape and asked Hailey what she thought would happen. She thought it would still sink.
She was pretty excited with the results.
