Throwback Thursday {Sink or Float!}


So...I'm a brand new blogger and I don't have much to throwback to... if you know what I'm saying, but I just have to feel like one of the cool kids today and join in on Cara's Linky Party!



So, I'm throwing all the way back to.....May! :)

**(Originally posted 5/8/13)**

We had such a fun time today with our sink/float science lesson.  My kids were very excited to become real scientists and they took their jobs of predicting, testing, and concluding very seriously!  We started out with a little vocab and a KWL chart to get our schema going.  I was very impressed with what they knew already and with the questions that they wanted answered.


...excuse that typo in the Learned section...we'll fix that :)

After some VERY CLEAR instructions about not chucking objects into water tubs or starting a water war with your neighbor...we set to work making predictions and testing out our hypotheses.  So great!



They did so well!  I expected and prepared for some mighty soaked desks, but my kids were so responsible with their materials.

They really loved that do-or-die, sink-or-float moment when they discovered whether or not their prediction was correct.  They also loved being surprised by a few objects like the sponge or the pumice.  I loved being able to watch their predictions unfold and change as they tested more and more objects.  


Now, I am new to this whole thing and I don't profess to have a single soul reading this....BUT, just in case someone is and just in case that someone is interested in this lesson, you can grab the materials I made for this lesson right here.

 In my itty bitty TPT store.   Thanks!!

That was my second post. Ever!  I hope I've come a little ways since then! Ha, thanks for reading!  And one more thing, my Chalk it Up! Chalkboard and Decor Brights pack and my A Happy Place pack are both on sale today!  Grab 'em below!
Have an amazing day!



Have a beautiful Thursday!
