The following topic activity can be continued for the remainder of the week.

I would like you to design and make a boat that will float on the water. With your family have a look around your house and garden and collect materials and different items that you could use to make your boat. Check with your adult that you can use the materials first!

These are some of the things you could use: plastic containers, sticks, straws, playdough, fabric, egg cartons, sponges, foil, plant pots, cardboard

Think about how big you want the boat to be, will it have a sail? Experiment with different materials to see whether they float or sink. Can you make the boat move? Is it strong enough to hold anything in it?

The main thing with this activity is to have fun and explore with the different materials. You will need a basin of water to try out your boat. Look at some pictures of boats online to help you with your design. I look forward to seeing your creations!
