Easy Science Experiments

My son loves to do experiments so this week we decided to see if an egg would sink in water.  It sank.  We talked about how the egg is heavier, or more dense, than the water.  Then we got another cup and added salt (a lot) and saw it float on top.  We then got a cup of water and filled it half full of salt water, then put the egg in, and then added salt water to the top.  The egg was in the middle of the cup.  It was a great way to talk about salt water being heavier or more dense than the egg and see how it works.  Very easy and fun.  More to come!
