Floating and Sinking

We read a story about Sailor Bear. It’s all about a bear who decides to become a sailor and makes a boat to sail on the sea. We then decided to use marla to make boats and try and get them to float on water. We loved this experiment. We had to make sure that there was no holes in our boats and that they would be shaped like bowls to get them to float. Unfortunately, none of our boats floated today. They all sank to the bottom of the tub. So we’ll have to try again tomorrow. When we get our boats to float, the next test will be to get a lego man sailing in our boats. We’ll keep you posted about how our future experiments go.
