Building the Mayflower

We were able to work with our groups to design and construct our version of the Mayflower. Then we tested our ship to see how many pilgrims (bear counters) our boat could carry before it sank. 
We drew out our ship and made a prediction before we started. 

The Popsicle stocks were "seats" for their pilgrims. 😊

Over 100 pilgrims made this voyage! 

This group's boat instantly sank so they went back to their table an re engineered their boat. They said they realized it needed aides to help keep the water out. Good thinking guys! 

1st attempt 

2nd attempt 

These guys had some great thinking. No water would get in but it was too small to hold a lot of pilgrims.
