Sink or Float - Mrs. B's Beehive
Teaching sink vs. float is one of my favorite kindergarten science lessons. The kids also love it, because getting to stick your hands in a tub full of cold water ranks right up there with jumping in puddles, and just feels like something you shouldn’t be doing in school. #livinonthewildside We begin our lesson by discussing what it means to sink and what it means to float.
