On Monday we did a science experiment, where we tested materials to see if they would float or sink. We wanted to test which material would be the best one to make a lifeboat with.

After our experiment, we made some lifeboats using lots of different types of materials. We tried hard to use materials that we knew would float and that were waterproof.

We tested our lifeboats this afternoon and most of them did float!


Can you make a lifeboat at home? Which materials will you use?
