Pour one-third cup of syrup into a glass jar followed by one-third cup of cooking oil. Then pour in one-third cup of water. Drop in a piece of plastic, followed by a grape, followed by a small cork. See what happens.

You will notice that the different liquids stacks up in layers. This is because the liquids have different densities. The most dense (syrup) will be at the bottom, the least dense (oil) will be at the top, with the water in between. Each object will sink to the level of the liquid that has a greater density than the object. The object will then float on that layer.

Science Experiments

Density is defined as the ratio of the mass of an object to its volume

Aiden got to practice using the rolling pin for the first time.

Sink or Float?

First, we collected many objects from around the house and outside.
Second, we predicted which ones would float and which ones would sink.
Third, we tested them out!

Banana Bread

Aiden and I baked banana bread today. We worked on counting and pouring. And I let him put everything except the eggs in. I keep telling him he cant touch the raw eggs yet, and he keeps asking why he cant help with the rotten eggs.

Fun and yummy. We used a recipe from Martha Stewart
