Review the day’s explorations and ideas about water. 

Bring over the water globes children made this morning. Ask:

  • Did the same things float and sink each time you flipped over the bottle? What about when you shook it up?
  • What things took longer to sink? Why do you think that’s so?
  • What did you think was the most interesting thing to watch in the bottle?

Look at the photos/video from the guided activity, Gently Down the Stream. Ask:

  • What kinds of things didn’t float down your stream?
  • What things floated down it easily?
  • Was the stream you created deep or shallow?
  • Did some things get stuck as they began to float? Why do you think that happened? Was there something you could do to make the object float again?
