Floating and sinking

We have been looking at why things sink and float. It is amazing what happens in nature.

This week room six did a little test about sinking and floating, first we had pots filled with water and we had to guess if the stuff that Mrs Oldfield gave us.

Next week we will continue to look at the why. Do you know about buoyancy, and displacement of water in the tank. As I notice every time I placed something in the tank the water level changed.


  1. . It is good that in science you are studying floating and sinking as a famous mathematician call Archimedes identified why things float and sink. You should research about "Archimedes principle” and yes 1 cubic CM of water has a weight of 1 gm.

  2. You a good at writing but you can do more then that Jordan put ore information Bye Jordan.
