Description:

In this activity, students will see that a carrot slice sinks in fresh water and floats in saltwater. Considering the placement of the carrot slice in water and salt water, students will infer that the density of salt water must be greater than the density of fresh water. As a challenge, students will adjust the density of the salt water until they get the carrot slice to hover somewhere in the middle of the cup.
