Explore Buoyancy in the Kitchen Sink

Buoyancy refers to an object's ability to float. Conduct an experiment with your child to determine whether numerous small objects – such as paper clips, coins, or erasers – are buoyant. Be sure to record your child's prediction for each object before testing it. When you're done, go back and add salt to the water. Does it change the effect?
