Float or sink?
These past few weeks in Science the year 1 children have been learning about Every day materials and their properties . As part of this, the children were faced with a question “what is the best material to make a boat?”
Some of the children said ” It’s floating and moving because of the wind ”
Other children commented ” The boat didn’t sink! It floated! ”
They were happy because their boat was floating!
Some children were making observations about what happens when they filled the boat.
They enjoyed carrying out this investigation!
