Sink or Float?

Students examine how weight and balance can effect if an item sinks or floats. They listen to the book "Who Sank the Boat?" by Pamela Allen, and discuss how the smallest animal sank the boat. Students then conduct an experiment in which they test six objects to see if they sink or float, making and testing their predictions on a chart.

I taught in the public schools for many years. When I moved to Japan and began teaching a large ESOL population, I found that I needed more resources and there just aren't "teacher stores" around. Lesson Planet has been a big help with supplemental material.
