What floats and what sinks?

Today's big question was 'what floats and what sinks?'
We predicted that toy cow, scissors, block, and the spoon will sink in the water
and we predicted that counter, stick, and a tennis ball will float.

Through this experiment, we found out that scissors and spoon sink in the water.

And toy cow, stick, block, counter, and tennis ball floats on the water.

Today we learnt that these objects float because they are light or have air in them. But spoons and scissors don't! 

There is air in our body too and this is why we can be awesome swimmers!

    It looked like you guys had a really fun time trying this experiment out! Were you guys surprised when the items you thought were going to float didn't?
