"Will your toy sink or float?!". This was the question preschoolers were asked on their special science experiment day. Before the preschoolers put their item into the water tub they made a prediction after being asked; "Do you think your toy will sink or float?". Each preschooler was able to have a turn with their own toy that they were able to bring from home. Once they put their toy in the tub they were able to see what happened next, then were able to share the exciting news with their friends. 

When the science experiment was over, they had more activities waiting to reflect on the experiment. During table groups, they were asked to draw what happened during their science experiment. At each table, there was an image of a tub similar to the one during the experiment. Students were able to draw if their item sank or if it was floating. The preschoolers were able to show their peers their final result!
