Float or Sink!

In 1DB, we have been learning about the properties of materials in our Science lessons. Last week we investigated materials which floated and those which sank.

We discovered that the shape of an object helped to determine whether it floated. Armed with this knowledge, our challenge this week was to make a boat which not only floated, but which could carry passengers. We had great fun making our boats, and were all successful in getting them to float!
