3NL Science - Float my Boat!

In the book we have been reading for Geography week, 'The Matchbox Diaries,' the grandfather sails on a boat from Italy to Ellis Island in America.

In science we are studying forces. Therefore we decided to investigate floating by building our own tin foil boats and loading them with pennies until they sunk!

First, we designed and made our boats.

We even threw in some maths and measured the length, width and depth of our boats in cm.

After that we made a prediction.

Then we tested our boats.

Finally, we recorded our answers.

Reception had learnt about our fun investigation and they paid a visit to find out what we were learning about.

They had some great questions to ask...
