Floating a paper clip

This paper clip experiment is about water tension. Did you know water has a skin. You can break it. When we did a floating and sinking experiment the things that were heavier than water sunk and the things that were lighter floated. 
Mrs Blair told us that she could make a paper clip float. We didn't believe her so we all tried it any way. 
Some people made the paper clip float by putting it in gently then Mrs Blair showed us how she could do it. Here is a video of the way she did it. You could try this too.

  2. there is a more easy one you just put it in carefully and hold the two sides of the paper clip and lower it down and there you have it a floating paperclip and remember don't break the tension and make sure it's dry.

  4. This was a very cool experiment the whole class didn't know how to float a paperclip like this.
    Did you know the water has a skin as well?
