How can boats be so heavy and still float? Find out why and so much more with the Boats That Float series. This bundle includes three lessons that teach the scientific principals of density, buoyancy, and displacement with clear and simple diagrams, demonstrations, and experiments. In the final lesson, students have a boat building contest to test their new skills. All activities are fully scripted and include the required worksheets for each lesson.

Scripted lessons make it easy for new teachers or group leaders to teach without extensive training. Most required materials are common household items, common school items, or easy to find art supplies. To see materials lists, standards, and other helpful notes, please download the preview.
