Titre Why do Icebergs Float?
Description This science learning experiences, presented in a Readers Theater format, explores the concept of balanced and unbalanced forces using the Buoyancy simulation. Participants will read about icebergs, make observations of icebergs from a NOAA simulation, float their own "iceberg" and use the simulation to help them understand why some objects float and some objects sink. Readers Theater is used to increase the reading fluency, and thus comprehension, of young readers through a science story.
