Maple Class investigate which shapes float.

This afternoon we had lots of fun investigating which shapes float.  We were given a lump of playdoh & chose four shapes to mound our playdoh into.  We predicted which of the shapes would float before carrying out our investigation.  We moulded our playdoh into a ball, a sausage, a flat shape and a cup shape.  We then placed our moulded playdoh into a bowl of water & watched to see if our pridictions were correct.  We discovered that only the cup shaded playdoh was able to float!  We then recorded a conclusion to our investigation in our books.
