Home challenge 1- Science 

In the sea, some things float, that means they stay on top of the water.  Some things sink in the water, that means they go down to the bottom of the water.  We want you to explore which objects in your house float, and which objects sink.  

Choose some small items from around the house, place them in a bowl of water, and sort through the ones that sink, and the ones that float.  Can you predict which ones will float or sink?  Why do you think it will float or sink?
