We made boats from cardboard, fabric, plastic and wood.

Look at our finished boats, ready to start our science investigation.

We tested each boat by placing into water and observing whether the boat floated or sunk and whether it was able to move when blown. We compared each boat with one made from a different material each time. It was a fair test because we put the boats in the water at the same time and all the boats had the same sail.
