In “Take Me Away” Boat Design, students will review what they know about sinking and floating while watching something float that you wouldn’t expect to see: a pineapple float. The pineapple has many pockets of air in it; therefore, it floats in water. Objects that weigh less than water float and objects that weigh more sink. Can you name a type of boat? The teacher-librarian will present the different parts of a boat and discuss the different types of hulls. Why does a displacement hull float better than a planning hull? Students will construct a boat that will float under the weight of 10 decorating stones.
