Float vs Sink

We had a wonderful teaching moment yesterday. it was a nice day, so we pulled out the hose and bucket to wash the car, and then got the little pool out too. While we were swimming, Princess V put the soap bottle in the pool. It floated. So we started grabbing other items to see what they would do.

Soap bottle - predicted float - it floats
Rock - predicted float - it sank
bouncy ball - predicted sink - it sank
squirt gun - predicted sink - it floats
