This is for the Illustration Friday "Heavy" topic. Its a spread from the "Density Dan" book that is a part of The Quirkles series. Density Dan explained to Dipsy Dog and Danny Duck that salt water is denser (heavier) than fresh water, which makes it easier to float. Dipsy Dog was lighter than the salt water. When something is lighter than the water, it will float and not sink.
The Quirkles books are an educational series that offer a fresh new way to integrate literacy and science at school or at home. Each book is full of vocabulary builders, character education lessons, and two related science experiments that allow for hands on activities, helping to reinforce the topics that were just read. The series was created by teachers, and each story teaches/reinforces the phonetic sounds that serve as the building blocks for reading, while also making science--earth, physical, and life--fun to learn. >> Quirkles science experiments for kids
