This afternoon we received a letter from Anne Bonny (a famous Irish pirate)
She told us that her crew wanted to build a new pirate ship however they didn't know which material to use! She asked us to investigate which materials float and which sink. We tested many materials and recorded our findings to report back to Anne.
We then decided to make our own pirate ships to float in the classroom. Although a real ship would not be made from plastic, we chose to use this material for our models as it was one of the materials that floated. We worked in pairs to make some super ships and then sailed them on the water. We love being scientists!
