- Science activity- Floating and Sinking. You will need an adult to supervise you for thisactivity. Be carefully doing this activity because you will need a bowl of water, or use the kitchen or bathroom sink or the bath. Check with your grown-up first. Make a boat using some plasticine or use a foil or plastic tray or even a small plastic bowl. How much will your boat hold? Try it using pennies, pasta, buttons, plastic play people- anything small as longas it is OK if it gets wet. What will your boat hold the most of? Why?
