Floating Orange


 an orange
 a deep bowl
 water


Care should be taken when doing experiments. Make sure to. It’s important that the Ladybirds listen to the instructions as health and safety of the girls is a priority. Always be careful when doing games or experiments with water and ensure that the Ladybirds are supervised.

• Fill the bowl with water
• Put the orange in the water and it will float.
Note: The tiny air-holes in the rind of the orange give the orange a lower density than the water. Now peel the rind off the orange and watch the orange sink when it’s placed in the water.
