Product Description
Dive deeper through this engineering challenge that brings to life beloved novel "Island of the Blue Dolphins" by Scott O'Dell.

In this challenge, students will research, brainstorm, budget, and build a plank canoe similar to Karana's that will hold the most "Supplies" before sinking. Students will do a deep dive into Chapter 11 from the novel to learn the details of why Karana's canoe was unsuccessful. Using the internet, students will then research ancient canoes versus modern canoes in order to better design and engineer their own canoes. Using the "Village outpost," students will budget for their materials and engineer, build and test their canoe.
