PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a great partner experiment that encourages creative thinking and problem solving. Students use a variety of materials to build a boat, and then test their structure in water. They must plan and execute a design with a partner, predict how many pennies their boat can support, and test their design. They get practice asking questions, making predictions, making observations, and comparing actual outcomes to their predictions. This is a huge classroom hit, and young engineers often ask for opportunities to redesign and try again!

In this product you will receive:
- a list of materials
- step by step instructions for how to prepare and conduct the experiment
- real photos accompanying the instructions to provide clarity
- printable forms for reflection afterwards

This experiment is one of six that is included in my Inquiry Process unit, which can be found here:
