Buoyancy


This term in Primary 6/7 we have been learning about buoyancy in science. We have been looking at what makes an object float or sink; how the density of an object affects how it behaves in water; and how salt can change the density of water, and therefore impact whether certain objects float or sink in it. We participated in many lessons on this topic which cumulated in designing and creating our own boats out of given materials and investigating how they behaved in water.
