Watch and engage in this 'Sea' themed Bucket session!
This week Adventurers will find out how sharks float in the sea!
You will need:
2 small plastic bottles with lids
some cooking oil
waterproof pens (like Sharpies)
Step 1 Fill one bottle with water
Step 2 Fill the other bottle with oil
Step 3 (optional) If you have Sharpie pens then you could draw a shark mouth on each bottle.
Step 4 Fill the sink with water
Step 5 Time to have a think - Sharks have oil in their livers, so what do you think will happen if you put the bottles in the water?
Step 6 Put the bottles in the water. What happens? Do they sink or float?
Let's do a salty sea water experiment!
You will need some eggs, some water and some salt.
Watch the video below to see Julie do the experiment. You can also download the salty sea water experiment instructions.
