Fun Jar Activity: See if an orange will float or sink. Then eat it 🙂
The girls each thought the orange (we actually used a clementine) would sink so I said it would float. I won.
As we were eating it Kiki went to put an orange slice in the water. I stopped her and asked if they thought it would float or sink. Both girls said float so I said I thought it would sink. I won again.
Then we threw in pieces of the peeling and watched them float. We speculated about why the peeling made the whole thing float when what was inside sinks. I hadn’t really thought about this before so it fascinated me.
