Sink or Float?

Second graders conducted their first science experiment of the year – What will sink and what will float?  We used the scientific method to first ask a question, write a hypothesis, follow procedures and collect data.  We tested many items around the room to see what would sink and float.  After some discussion we concluded that heavier more solid items sink and hollow, lighter objects float.
