Boat Building

1st class also made boats from plaster cinema as part of our experiments about floating and sinking. We worked in pairs to make a boat that would float. It was harder than we thought it would be. Although some of our boats looked like they would float they sank as soon as we put them on water. We looked at each others designs and decided that our boats needed a flat base and some sort of side to keep the water out. 

Once our boats were able o flat we then had to see how many “passengers” our boats would hold. We used dry beans as passengers. 

Here are some photos of us at work.
