Reflection:

During these visits, two videos about the buoyancy and density have been shown on the large screen. One of the videos which is presented by Disney was very attractive to the students. In this video a science guy, Bill Nye, is explaining the concept of buoyancy with a lot of funny demonstrations and music. Most of the students were carefully following the video and asked me to bring these kinds of videos for the class more. The second movie was explaining the density and buoyancy concept by referring to good examples like floating balloons in the air, floating cruises and how the scuba divers sink and go deep in water and after illustrating it explains how to find the density of an object and actually it was a good activity after the demonstration that they had done for the densities of the different liquids and the floating objects in different layer of the liquids.

Afterwards, the teacher gave his lecture for the buoyancy. Totally the combination of the lesson and activities had a very positive feedback.
