In year one we have been learning about all the different types of Materials.

We decided to do and experiment to see which materials would be the best for making a boat. … and making sure that it will stay afloat.

We started out by sorting the every day objects into the materials type and then did a fair investigation to see which one floated and which sank. We then recorded our conclusion.




The next day we looked at our conclusion and chose the materials we though the most appropriate to build a boat with.

After that we designed and built our boats.



Finally we took our boats to the pond and put them in the water to text our choice of materials.
