  • No Comments

Contributed By


Each student will research and build a boat out of balsa wood.
Students should research terms such as keel, beam and design a
boat.  Viking ships are perfect for this project. 

This project will be in groups of 4.

You will need the students to record the design and boat built
in the journals.

Students should take into account the expected use and
weight of the payload the boat is to carry.

Will the boat float or tip over?

Where will the water line be?
