In SESE this month we have been learning all about water. In Science, our teacher gave us the challenge of designing a sailboat to investigate how forces act on objects. We looked at different ways boats can be powered- wind, humans and engines. It was then time to start designing and building. We had great fun coming up with our own designs for our sailboats. Finally the fun part- testing out our boats! We tried out different ways to make our boats move on the water- pushing, pulling and blowing the boats. We really enjoyed this investigation and all our boats floated and sailed successfully!
