SLWK-8 2nd Graders – Sink the Boat

Mrs. Alicia Miller’s 2nd Grade class performed a lab called “Sink the Boat”. Students experimented with clay to find a shape that floats. Then they estimated how many pennies it would take to sink a boat. Next, students added pennies one by one until their boats sank. Once it sank, they recorded the data. They repeated the experiment using paper clips. Ms. Diane Hanfmann also assisted the students with this lab.
