Titanic: Science | Titanic Buoyancy

Year 5

Year 6


SKU: T56IL80705

In this Titanic Buoyancy lesson for KS2 children, your class will explore buoyancy and why ships float when a paper clip sinks in water. Your Year 5 & Year 6 children will investigate the Archimedes Principle, buoyancy and water displacement as they find an answer to this question.

During their independent learning, they can then express what they have found out about buoyancy in relation to the Titanic, as well as carry out a practical investigation into water-tight bulkheads.

During the plenary, they will then use what they have learnt to explain why the Titanic sunk after an iceberg pierced holes in the side, filling the hull with water.
