In this investigation, students make predictions and observations of a counterintuitive phenomenon. Given the scenario of a boat filled with a set of large rocks placed in a swimming pool, the students investigate what happens to both the water level in the pool and the level at which the boat floats when the rocks are taken out of the boat and placed into the water.
