Our Floating Boats!

We have been learning to write a recount. Today we wrote a recount as a class about making our boats. We were so excited that almost all of them floated! The best part is we had so much fun working together and learning from each other!

Our Boats
This week Room 12 made boats with a buddy because we have been learning about working together.
First we made a plan. We drew our boat and we wrote down what we needed to make it.
The next day we made the boats. It was hard to make the boats.

The materials we used were bubble wrap, tinfoil, straws, cups, paper, sellotape and red material.

On the third day we tried to test our boats to see if they float or sink! We went to the pool with our boats. Then we got changed and got in the pool. The water was chilly!

We put the boats in the pool and let them float. Most of the boats floated, but some of them sank!

Lastly, we had to make sure we took all the bits of boat that sank out of the pool. It was so much fun making boats and taking them to the pool. We loved making boats!

Making Boats

Today we made boats to test out our growth mindset while we are working together! A growth mindset is knowing you can always learn more and that if you can't do something, you just can't do it YET! We have also been learning about teamwork and helping each other learn!

Here are some pictures of us making our boats - check back tomorrow for pictures of us seeing if they float in the pool!

How awesome do our boats look? We hope that they will float!

Here are some pictures of our writing and of us learning in Room 12
