As part of their unit on SALT, the 1st Grade students investigated how to make an egg float in water.  What makes it float?

The whole lesson was in English, including the scientific names and explanations.  In particular, we looked at the following terms:  solution, solute, solvent, dissolve, soluble, and insoluble.  However, the main discussion was on density, and designing a scientific experiment that can show the effect of changes in density.

As expected, “hands-on” experiments are always the most enjoyable and beneficial for learning.
