Float & Sink

This is a Montessori activity that is great to do in this summer heat! All you need is a large tub filled with water, a box full of waterproof objects from around the house, that your child may want to choose themselves and two laminated A4 sheets that say "float" and "sink" on them.

Tara picked up an item from her bucket and placed it in the water and saw if it floated or sunk then placed it on the correct paper.

This not only helps explain gravity and weight but also identifies familiar words
