photo of jar, syrup, oil, grape, plastic, and cork grab
  • a tall glass jar
  • syrup
  • cooking oil
  • a cup of water
  • a grape
  • a small piece of plastic
  • a cork
  1. Pour two cups of syrup into the jar.
  2. Slowly pour two cups of cooking oil into the jar...it should float on the syrup.
  3. Pour the cup of water into the jar of syrup and oil. It will sink below the oil, but float on the syrup. It forms a whole new layer!
  4. Grab the cork, the grape and plastic and drop them in! Will they sink or float?
