The Great Boat Float - 1R

As a conclusion to our Integrated Studies unit on Materials the Year 1R were very excited to design, build and float their own boats. These boats were made by the Year One students following experimentation on the properties of various materials and their suitability as boat building materials. The students designed their own boats and were able to justify why they used certain materials. The Year Ones thoroughly enjoyed the boat floating with excited anticipation… Will it float or not? Thankfully, there was a 100% success rate. Great work Year 1R!
