Science is about discovering the world around us. To foster scientific learning in early childhood, active hands-on learning is very important and this can best be achieved through science experiments.
Children of K.G enthusiastically engaged themselves in discovering all the things that sink and float through the experiment. It helped them to classify different things of various shapes, sizes, textures and weight which could float or sink in water. Children tried to pick various objects like —Leaves, plastic box, scissors, paper, safety pins, board pins, plastic toys, marker pens, pencils, paint brush etc. They finally learnt through their hands-on experience that it is not the size of the object that determines whether the object will sink or float but it depends on what is the composition of the object. This experiment was great fun as children were happy to learn something new by discovering on their own.
