P5/6 Have been learning about Floating and Sinking

P5/6A have been learning about Floating and Sinking.

Firstly we made various shapes from plasticine .

We then made predictions about their abilities to float or sink and then tested these predictions in water.

 

 

 

 

After testing the shapes we were given, we were then asked to use what we had learned to make a shape that would both float and could carry an object without sinking.

After a few clues and a few sinking shapes we all found at least one shape that would stay afloat while holding an object and we had great fun!
