Title: Sink It     
Description: This Science NetLinks lesson is designed to develop students' understanding of sinking and floating. Students first classify a group of common objects by a characteristic of their own choosing. Then they reclassify the same group of objects by their predictions about whether each item will float or sink in water. As a group, they design an experiment to test their predictions (hypotheses).
