Why Does a Stone Sink In Water? Let's Make Sense of it with Science
Ever wonder why a stone sinks in water? Let's make sense of it with science. If you've ever tossed a stone into a lake, you know what happens next-it sinks. Let's find out why. Key vocabulary words are density, volume, sink, float, natural force, gravity, upward force, and weight. This is a great resource to help build background knowledge for students and would work well in conjunction with a lesson/unit or reading non-fiction texts on properties of waters, oceans, physics, etc. (1:46)
