Project Information
Students will investigate the buoyancy of boats through scientific investigation and experimentation, while analyzing art elements and principles of design and materials through the exploration of boat history. Students will respond to, analyze and make judgments about their models and the materials used to create their models based on the knowledge of the scientific concepts and cultural influences of their boat models. Students will evaluate boats in their group by using the criteria sheet for art, science and materials.
