The start of something extraordinary

Sailing Boats

Will it float or will it sink? Kids love learning about water and how it works. Explore what floats and what sinks and why. Who can make a boat to sail in the water? Whose sailed the best? Why? What kind of resources can be used to make these boats? Encourage your kids to think about why things float and sink - and then transfer this information into their swimming activities too.
