Sink or Float Boats

Students in first grade had a chance to use the STEAM Room to complete an experiment called “Sink or Float Boats.”

From Mrs. French- “To go along with our unit ‘How do things get built?’, we designed and built aluminum foil boats.  Then we predicted and experimented how many pennies our boats would hold before sinking.  One of the children had a phenomenal design that held almost 350 pennies before sinking!  We learned a lot, and many of the children were anxious to try this experiment at home.”IMG_0199 IMG_0198 IMG_0197 IMG_0196 IMG_0195 IMG_0194 IMG_0193 IMG_0192 IMG_0191 IMG_0190
