Floating and Flying

Nov 7, 2019 | Katipo - Year 3 blog

Did you know……..

  • That if a boat has a V shape with no weight in it, it will sink.
  • You cannot push a cup upside down in a bowl of water because the air fills the space in the cup.
  • Objects with air in them float.
  • We discovered water can act like the force, friction.



Did you know……

  • That a parachute with a hole in the middle floats down more slowly
  • The weight you use has to be the right for the size of the parachute.


We had so much fun finding out about water resistance and and air resistance.
