Title: Things That Float and Things That Don't

Author: David A. Adler

KDL Description:


Explains the concept of density in easy-to-understand terms, and shows many ways to demonstrate the concept through simple, hands-on activities.

Amazon Description:

It can be surprising which objects float and which don’t. An apple floats, but a ball of aluminum foil does not. If that same ball of foil is shaped into a boat, it floats! Why? And how is it possible that a huge ship made of steel can float? Answering these questions about density and flotation is David A. Adler’s clear, concise text, paired with Anna Raff’s delightful illustrations. Activities that demonstrate the properties of flotation are included.
