Description:

In this hands-on activity, learners will construct a scuba diver that can float in order to explore how sea creatures stay neutrally buoyant in the ocean and to see what kinds of forces might be influencing their buoyancy. By adding materials such as balloons, rubber bands, toothpicks, pennies, etc. to their figure, they will try to make it neutrally buoyant in a bucket of water. This lesson plan includes discussion questions, key vocabulary, and is standards-based.
