Enhancing Your Child’s Learning
Many people become interested in this blog because my son learned to read, write, and do math (such as multiplication) at the age of three. However, we share a lot of science experiments with our audience.
The reason is that science experiments can enhance children’s vocabulary more so than formal reading lessons. When doing science experiments, children are experiencing hands-on learning and various words such as speed, inertia, chemical reaction etc. When they are following the instructions to a science experiment that are performing actions with new vocabulary.
For example, when my son and I did the Walking Water Science Experiment he learned and reviewed words such as capillary action and gravity. He also saw and experienced these words in action while doing the experiment.
Sink or Float Experiment
Today I want to share with you a simple and fun activity called the Sink or Float Experiment. It is a great way to introduce your kids to scientific words such as gravity, column, test, observe, and layer.
We like this experiment because you can use liquids you have in your kitchen. Your child will use these liquids to create three layers or columns in a glass. Then they will observe and test the density of various objects in your home.
Kids have the most fun testing the density of their toys and food in your kitchen.
My son, Corban, made a video that will show you how to do the Sink or Float Experiment. This video comes from his YouTube Channel, Corban’s Fun Learning Adventures. Please like and subscribe to support the channel and for fun activities for kids.
We hope your kids enjoy this experiment!
