Sale children enhance knowledge of floating and sinking
Date: 17 Oct 2018
Children at Bright Horizons Sale Day Nursery and Preschool have been learning more about the process of floating and sinking.
The children searched the nursery for a variety of resources to test if they would float or sink, making predictions prior to testing. They kept a tally to see if their predictions were correct.
“When we realised that foil floats, we decided to have a boat race,” said Jessica Gill, lead practitioner. “We then used art straws to blow our boats across the finish line.”
The activities were part of Bright Horizons’ Growing Scientists enhancement which helps children identify scientific activities which occur in their everyday lives.
