Building Our Own Boats

In science yesterday we also followed a plan and built our own boats to test the “I can” statements:

  • “I know that materials that are waterproof, that are stiff and that float easily make the best boats”
  • “I know how to develop plans for building a boat, why some materials, or plans, are better for boat building, and how to make a boat that will bloat, carry a load and be stable in the water”

Today we got to test the boats.  Below is a video of Michayla testing her boat in the water, as well as a slideshow of all the boats we built.  What a fun and purposeful experiment!
