Buoyancy: Integrating Science and Literature

Integrate science and literature by testing -- with scientific method -- the veracity of the floating peach described in Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach. Clips from a Bill Nye: The Science Guy episode about buoyancy frontload vocabulary for your young scholars prior to an experiment about what will sink and what will float. Education at its most engaging and relevant.
