As part of 'Understanding of the World', children in Class Hughes were given the challenge-
'TO BUILD A BOAT THAT FLOATS'
"If it has a hole in it, it will sink"- Joel
"It will sink if it gets soggy"- Elissa- referring to cardboard.
"If its light it will float"- Krayden
After lots of discussion about floating, sinking, heavy & light and what materials may be waterproof, the scene was set for boat making.
After selecting the materials to be used, there was lots of cutting and sticking and wonderful boats galore!
Time for testing- DID WE BUILD A BOAT THAT FLOATS?
