This is a wonderful and simple activity that works well indoors and out. What you’ll need is a variety of small objects, a bowl of water, (a fishbowl works great!) and a small sieve or tongs from your kitchen. Let your child guess which objects will float and which will sink, then let him or her experiment! Your child will drop each object into the water and discover what the object does. Provide tongs or a sieve so he or she can retrieve each object and place into the correct “float” or “sink” pile.
