Measuring & Comparing

Sink or float could be a science lesson, by exploring properties of matter and density or objects, however, it can also be an activity of categorizing or classifying objects by their weight, size, and shape in order to learn mathematics skills. Students will come to understand the weight and size of the objects, as well as determine which objects are bigger and smaller than others.
