Preschool Science Activities - What Sinks and What Floats

Some of my favorite times with my preschoolers are doing preschool science activities. The children are so attentive and can't wait to be involved in the activities. During this time they are learning, observing, and helping each other and discovering the concepts that I am teaching them.

This is a preschool science activity that was sent to me recently. Try this one, add to it and modify it to your own situation.

Science-What sinks? What floats?

Ask the children what sinks or floats, after you collect a few items, penny, paper clip, block of wood, lego, duplo, spoon, pencil, or what ever you think of, enough for each child in the class. Also can turn into Math by asking How many sinks and how many float. Make it fun by letting them play in the water afterwards with boats.

If you like these preschool science activities, check out the other ideas in the Preschool Planner.


There are Two Editions now for the Preschool Planner: Basic or Platinum.

If you prefer lessons which have ideas for the Toddler Age, go here to the second volume of lessons. There is an entire bonus section devoted to TODDLERS.


Send me any ideas you would like to share and I will post them on my Blog.
