Building Our Sailboats

In Science class today we worked on combining all of our Boats and Buoyancy “I can” statements so far with our new one:  “I know how to change a boat so it can be moved through the water.”.   We’re trying to make sure that we are using waterproof materials that are stiff and can float easily, as well as making sure that our boats are stable in the water.  Tomorrow each sailboat will take its maiden voyage!  Students will have a checklist that includes:

  • Did my boat float?
  • Could I propel it through the water?
  • What would I do differently if I made another sailboat?

Below is a video of students making and talking about their sailboats.
