Experiments are fun and can change your child’s entire attitude toward science. Just this week, my child and I were trudging dutifully through general science. I mean, we were so bogged down. I was tired of talking and he was tired of listening. Now, we don’t always do the experiments, but thankfully, when I turned the page there was one just waiting on us. We jumped all over it, tearing out bowls and tweezers and chewing gum…we were already starting to wake up! By the time we started filling the bowl up with water, we were “all in.”
I say all that to say this: science experiments can change your
life day. Have some fun with your student with this Float Your Boat Experiment! The free, printable Record Sheet makes it fun to record predictions and results.
