Who sank the boat?

Posted on

Following on from Literacy this morning, we explored floating and sinking in maths. We created a Venn Diagram on the floor using hoola hoops and then tested items in the room that we guessed might float or sink. After testing each item we placed it in the correct hoop as a group.

After our mini lesson on floating and sinking we went back to work in our table groups to test more items from around the room and record whether they floated or whether they sank.

It was a lot of fun making a big mess of the water in our classroom and being surprised at which items floated and which items sank.

Make sure you check out our pictures and movie of our findings!
