PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Run run as fast as you can! But the gingerbread man gets into trouble when he comes to a river!
Have some fun on the days before winter break and get your students thinking! This is a twist on the boat building density (buoyancy) challenge often done with aluminum foil and pennies.
Challenge your students to build a boat to hold a gingerbread man (a large cookie or a laminated cut-out with pennies added for additional weight). Students use given materials to design, build and redesign a boat.
