Float My Boat

Te Whakamānu i Taku Poti

Will it float? Why does it sink? What is “flinking”? By experimenting with a variety of objects, recording their observations and making predictions, students will find the answers to these questions. Concepts of buoyancy, density and displacement are also introduced. Students can calculate the density of solids and compare the density of liquids, as well as exploring the relationship between volume, mass and density.
