ACORN SINK OR FLOAT
Lil Muallimah collected a bunch of acorns while out on a walk. When she same back she showed how many she had collected and that how some were green and some were brown.
Later that evening she suddenly said, Can I do an experiment with my acorns ?
Well experiment she did... she got out a glass first put the green acorn in and then a brown. "Mama look, the green one sinks and the brown one floats!" She was so excited that her experiments and that she got different results...:) Mashallah
She kept adding more acorns and kept noting her results... green ones (fresh fruit) sink, and the brown ones (drying/dryed) floated.
A simple yet cool experiment, thought and performed by Lil Muallimah all by herself :) Mashallah!
