This ILS starts with an orientation about sinking and floating and students will learn about density. Next they will learn to recognize good and bad experiments. They will use this knowledge to judge the experiments of Anna and Simon. In the second phase student will conduct an experiment of their own, where they investigate why some things floats and others sink. Finally, they will write a report about your experiments and reflect on the work of another group

Learning goals:

  • Learn about sinking and floating
  • Learn about density
  • Learn what is a good experiment and what is not
  • Learn to judge if an experiment is good or not and how to adapt it
