Pumpkin Science: To Float or Not to Float?
In kindergarten, young scientists make lots of predictions. Not only is it a core science curriculum skill, but it can also be downright fun when it’s tied into seasonal adventures. And fall is as great a time as any to be a scientist. But this experiment can be done any time of the year. Here's a great activity about exploratory science that challenges your child to make predictions and discover relative size, density, and buoyancy with... pumpkins!
What You Need:
- Piece of string about the length of your arm
- 3 different sized pumpkins
- Bath tub of water or large bucket filled with water
