Enrichment Fun for the week of February 24, 2020

Science fun with water and oranges!!   What will happen if we place an orange into the water in the tank?  What will happen if we put a peeled orange into the water in the tank?  Will they both sink?  Will they float?


OH MY! The unpeeled orange floats and the peeled orange sinks!  What???  This can’t be! Let’s try this again!

Trying it again! This time we tried to hold the unpeeled orange down for 10 seconds! Guess what?? It still floats! Why does this happen? The secret?? There is an air bubble in the unpeeled orange that allows it to float.
