Boat Experiment in Year 2

How did Londoners escape the Great Fire of 1666? In boats via the River Thames! Yesterday, Year 2 were to predict which material would make the best boat for their escape out of play dough, foil, cardboard, paper and plastic Lego. We then had fun making the boats and testing them as a class! The results surprised some of us as although cardboard looks strong- it wasn’t waterproof!
