Float The Apple Boat
An Activity for School age:
Explore flotation by creating little boats out of apples.

Before You Begin:
Cut apples in half.

Activity Goals:
Learn how seeds travel
Explore the concept of floating

Ask children what they predict will happen. Will the apple sink or float? Begin a conversation about seeds and how seeds travel from one place to another.

Begin by cutting out “sails” in different shapes and sizes. Use stamps to decorate them.
Cut little slits in each sail and slide the sail over a craft stick.
Insert the sail into the flat side of each apple.
Fill a large, clear bin with water and place the apple boats in the water.
See if they sink or float!
