Design a Boat

Spread the love

In science class this week Filip investigated how to make a boat that floats.

Here is Filip’s report:

He used: Plasticine and a tub of water

What we did with them: We made different designs of boats

What it looked like?                 Did it float?          Why?         How many passengers could it hold before sinking?

This boat was very fat, big like a ball        No        It didn’t look like a boat and it was a circle shape

This boat was very long and a little bit deep      No    I think no because it wasn’t deep enough

It was a good shape.    It was very deep in the middle    Yes  Because it was deep in the middle.   Had a good shape.    It help 13 passengers before it sank.

The best boat was the last one. The shape is really important.
