As part of our Titanic project we have been learning about materials that float and sink this week. We tested lots of different items like sponges, rubbers, shells, 3d shapes and plasticine. We made predictions first. We thought that the heavier things would sink. We concluded that the shape of an object helped it to float and also if it contained air. We also enjoyed drama and writing- going into role as passengers on the Titanic. Through this the children were able to more fully experience the thoughts and feelings of the Titanic’s passengers at the launch. Also we watched original film from the launch of the Titanic to help us understand what it was like.
