I finally figured out how boats float! I absolutely love home schooling because we literally live, eat and breathe whatever we’re studying.
Just check out my bathtub, the center of all things sinking and floating:
Brooke wasn’t too fond of cleaning up the soggy shredded wheat, but she and the others were tickled at being able to stick whatever they wanted to test into a tub full of water.
We all worked on sketches of boats. Even me.
The children set to work building their own boats to float on the river out back.
I love that Brooke took these photos herself, anticipating this very blog post.
Despite my doubts, her maiden voyage was a success.
I’ll show more photos when we make it out to the river. This is our final week studying Ships and Floating.
