Our Boat Designs – Carrying Heavier Loads

In science today we worked on altering the designs of our plastiscine boats so that they would carry heavier loads.  Each student had the opportunity to (re)create their boat 4 times, with the goal of holding more marbles each time.  Below is a slideshow showing boats that held at least 10 marbles.  At the end of the show is a picture of Vivien with her boat that held 26 marbles, and Paris with her boat that held 37 marbles!
