Science

Have a go at making your own boat race! I've included the instructions below or you can click on the word document. 

REMEMBER - YOU WILL NEED A GROWN UP TO HELP YOU WHEN USING WATER. STAY SAFE.

 

Challenge:

Make 3 different shaped boats. Which one moves the fastest through the water? Why might that be?

You can extend the challenge by adding salt to the water- does this change your results?

 

Equipment:

Tin foil (or other boat making material you have in your house eg playdough)

Blowing source – your mouth is great for this but if you have grown with you, you could try using a hand held fan.

Bath/paddling pool/sink/tray
