Building a Stable Boat

Today in Science we were predicting then recording how many pennies could get loaded onto popsicle sticks on a boat before tipping or sinking.  We learned that it is very important to balance a load on a boat.  You can not put everything on one side or the boat tips.  We will be building our own boats starting on Thursday.  Then we will do predicting and experimenting with the boats that we build.  Wish us luck!
