Does your Boat Float?

Does your boat float?


As part of our work on travel and transport this term, we are looking at different ways to travel around the world. Thinking about how a boat can float on water, yet be filled with passengers, their luggage (and everything else aboard) raises a lot of questions about how boats don't sink every trip! 

Can you make a boat of your own that floats on water? It can be made from any materials you choose. If you are successful, could you place some small objects on your boat (perhaps coins or paperclips) to see if your boat stays afloat? How many items can your boat hold before it sinks? Record your findings and let us know what happened.

Good luck!
