Lighter in Water

A song about buoyancy written based on the science writing of grade 2/3 students after reading the storyThe Secret of the Stone.

Hi Jasmine, what did you do in science today?
I learned that a rock is easier to lift in water
It’s easier to lift, than out of water
 
We read a story
The three piggies helped wolf lift a heavy stone
By filling the hollow with water

It was a surprise
But we proved it
Using a spring scale
To measure the weight
 In and out of water

Out of the water
The spring scale read 2000 grams
But only 1600 in the water

Hi Jasmine, what did you learn in science today?
I learned that a rock is easier to lift in water
It’s easier to lift, than out of water

It was a surprise
But we proved it
Using a spring scale
To measure the weight
In and out of water
To measure the weight
In and out of water
