Floating fruit By Emily, Mary, and Charlotte
First of all… Week 1
- Lemons: We filled a container with water then placed the unpeeled lemon in it.
- A Lemons skin contains air bubbles that help the lemon to float. When the skin is peeled, the lemon sinks as you can see here.

Lemons in Salt Week 2
- We placed half a lemon in a jar of water with salt.
- A few days later we discovered that the lemon was surrounded in mini bubbles.
- Approximately a week later, it was mouldy and slightly softer than usual.

- Why does a peeled lemon sink?
- Because there are air bubbles in the skin as you should know.
- Did you know…no, you probably didn’t.
- That you can peel a lemon and leave a small amount of skin on it and it would still float.

For the tomato
- We put a ordinary tomato in water and salt
- And note that the tomato was not munted it was totally perfect.
- After around two weeks of it in the jar its well as you can see munted

- Thank you for watching our slide show.
- We are extremely sorry that we couldn’t find the information to prove why it turned out the way it did.
- We searched time and time again – on the internet, in books, and we even got Mrs Campion to give us a hand; but still nothing!
- So sorry for that slip-up.
