cover I just posted a new product Resources for Teaching about Buoyancy.

Here’s the link that I included in the product. Check out the condiment diver, it just needs a pop bottle with water and a packet of ketchup. Families love the activity.

Floating and sinking paperclips on a sheet of foil* can be a great way to start the year with a simple science activity.

You might use this as a team building activity, practice for following directions, or that always fun open house with families as we start our school year.

You just needs foil, paperclips, and dishpans of water. Oh, and a few cloth or paper towels!  🙂

  1. What a great way to start off the new school year! These lessons get the kids doing something fun (and educational) right away. The lessons are easy to follow and need very basic materials. Not only are the students excited about doing physics, but there are also opportunities for the teacher to extend the lesson by talking about and discussing the attributes of being “buoyant” as a class member in addition to other character traits!
