This experiment is a great way to explain the principle of buoyancy and also to get your kids to voluntarily wash your fruit.
What you'll need:
Regular orange
Peeled orange
Deep bowl or pitcher of water

One of these oranges will sink and one will float. Which is which? You might be surprised by the results.
Drop each orange into the water separately. While the orange with the peel is certainly heavier, it will float while the peeled orange sinks. This is because the orange rind retains air. The air bubbles give the orange a lower density than the surrounding water, causing it to float. This principle is called buoyancy.
