Summary
Introduces the physical properties of objects that sink or float and offers examples of them in everyday life, along with simple experiments to try at home
Summary
"An apple floats in a tub of water, but a ball of aluminum foil sinks to the bottom. But wait. If that same ball of foil is flattened out and shaped into a boat, it floats! How can that be? David A. Adler's clear, concise text and Anna Raff's delightful illustrations explain the basic principles of flotation and density in a way that will really sink in"--
