Egg Float

What you need: one cup of plain water, one cup of salt water, one raw egg.

How to: Drop the egg in the plain water and watch how it sinks to the bottom of the glass. Then, drop the egg into the salt water and watch how it floats. Let kiddo wax on why he thinks the egg sank or floated.

How it works: This is a cool lesson on density. When things are less dense than the water they sink. If the water is denser they float.
