Inquiry time

Boat making

We having been learning about boats and why objects float, so on Thursday afternoon we decided to have a go making our very own pirate ships.
First we secured rubberbands around 3 corks.  Then we made our pirate sails using black paper.  We had to make sure the Jolly Roger was drawn on first! Next we secured our sails to the cork base using a toothpick. We drew patterns on our boats with pens and secured a coloured flag on the top of the mast.  Then they were ready for sailing.
