Can You Make A Penny Float?

Students participate in a discussion about sinking and floating. They then look at objects and predict whether or not the objects will sink or float. In groups of three or four, students conduct experiments to see what objects sink or float. Students record results in their science notebooks. Lastly, the students use problem solving skills to make a penny float.
