Peanut’s Sink & Nougat Floats!

Buoyancy and density. That’s what we learned about in this lesson. We used candy  {none of which I liked} and then we got to choose our own fruit or veggie {all of which I liked!}. So we made our prediction and tossed them into the drink (a beaker filled with water)!

The outcomes were different from what we expected – many surprises about what floated and what didn’t and how the density of say strawberries weren’t enough to make it sink. As you can see by the charts, most of our predictions were wrong but it was…. AWESOME!!!!!
