Time to experiment!

Explore which shapes float by moulding and reshaping a lump of plasticine. First test whether the lump floats, then squash, squeeze and bend the plasticine, moulding it into a variety of shapes, such as sausage, flat and cup shaped, testing and recording at each stage how well the new shape can float.

Note: Children could retest their plasticine rafts on salty water. Is there a difference? Why?

Practical resources:

  • Modelling clay
  • Deep containers
