Daily Challenge

Hi everyone,

Today's challenge is based upon the story 'Stick Man' by Julia Donaldson.

Go and watch/listen to the story first (it is our story for today) and then come back to find out what your challenge is!


In the story, the stick man floats out to sea. I would like you to think about different things that float. Can you do a science experiment to check what objects float and what objects sink? Our topic is plants so maybe you could test some things from outside. I wonder if grass will sink or float? What would happen to a flower if you put it in water? What about other objects around your house?

When you are doing your experiment there are lots of ways you can record your findings. Maybe you just want to talk about them with your family. Maybe you could make a tally chart for things that sink and things that float and see which gets more tally marks or maybe you want to make a tick chart! It is up to you.

Go and explore and have fun and let me know what you find out!
