This week I put together a basket full of STEM supplies and challenged my kiddos to make a boat that would float. We took it a step further to see if their boats would float if we added some pennies to them. It was SO fun!
Here's what was in the basket:
They got to work and made some very creative things (some that didn't work quite as well as they would have liked!).
Then we put the boats to the test in a bucket of water.
The winning boat held an amazing 45 pennies before it sank.
We all enjoyed a fun morning outside, being creative and, of course, some awesome competition!
