At any rate, I managed to squeeze this in during the last week of school. My class was done with intense lessons. They were ready for something different. They were ready for some hands-on experimentation. And I was able to tie it into reading!!!
I have some nonfiction floating and sinking big books that we read together as a class, like the one below.
In addition, this emergent reader booklet integrates the floating and sinking theme into reading!! And it also your freebie today!!

I would also like to share this gem! I was not able to share it with my class, because it is only available on YouTube and I could not access it through the district server. However, I played it at home for my second grade son and he was glued to his seat! It is an interactive video. Give it a try on your computer!! (It doesn't work on the iPad.)
