Daily Challenge

Hi everyone,

Today for Miss Heafford's challenge I have attached a science experiment for you to do. It explores how the density of water changes when you add salt. You will need 2 bowls, 2 eggs, some salt, some water and a selection of objects that you could put in water to check if they float/sink. 

When adding the salt to the water you can discuss with your child that the sea has lots of salt in it. Get them to put their finger in the water and then lick it... can they taste the salt? Would they want to drink sea water?!

Have fun exploring and discussing!
