The Global Goal: STREAM
Posted on 01/18/2019
Kindergarten, Grades 1 and 2 students were instructed to make boats that would float using only empty water bottles, empty paper towel rolls, construction paper and popsicle sticks. 
Students first watched online videos of "Sink or Float" experiments and even learned a song about the Horn of Africa.  They then worked in collaborative, inter-graded groups of four to five members.  Students discussed their designs and illustrated their construction plans. 

Ultimately, students tested their boats for buoyancy and flotation before sharing their results.  And, yes - all the boats did float!
