Product Description
If you are adding STEM, Engineering, and NGSS activities to your classroom then this activity is sure to be a crowd pleaser for individuals, partners, or small groups. This activity involves planning, designing, and creating a boat to hold the most money. It also introduces or reinforces money and weight concepts as well as a writing component (with sentence frames). Finally, this lesson has teacher resources ready to go. This is a print to teach activity.

Materials Needed:
- A variety of loose/spare change (the more the better)
- Different types of water holders (1 for every 1 to 4 students works best)
- Aluminum Foil
- A scale may be used but it is not necessarily needed: (round up/down to add or multiply depending on where your students are in math)
