Solids, liquids, and gasses: boats

As part of our study of solids, liquids, and gasses, we explored things that float and sink. Students were then challenged to create a plan to build something that would float, would be able to hold a small item, and would be made out of at least 3 materials. Once the plan was finished, they got right to building their creations!

A few examples of completed plans and the boats:
We had to test them! Here are some of our boats in action:

Day at the museum!

All of the Grade 2 students enjoyed a very busy day of learning and fun at the Manitoba Museum!We had a session learning about the history of our Winnipeg community and another about  solids, liquids, and gasses. We also had a chance to explore both the main and science galleries.
