Grade 1/2 Carter
In science we were examining buoyancy. The students were asked to design a boat that would float and hold blocks. They were to bring in recycled material from home and construct the boat here at school. The students in the pictures constructed boats that held 100 snap cubes. The other children in the class were given a chance to modify their boats. Great work!
