This is a STEM lesson for students to complete in groups or individually. They are given a premeasured sheet of aluminum foil and must build a Mayflower replica that they feel will withstand the most weight.
Science is incorporated because they are naming their variables, and they are weighing the boat before and after to incorporate math.
Lab questions are also included.
Students are asked to research the Mayflower and write a descriptive paragraph with their information learned during research.
