Title Boat or Submarine
What shape of container will hold the most weight ?
Hypothesis We have chosen a bowl because it will hold more weight because it is bigger.
Container filled with water, modelling clay, old coins
Method (What I did)
Create a boat out of modelling clay.
Fill the container with water.
Place the boat carefully onto the water so it floats.
One at a time , put coins carefully into the boat . Count how many coins are in the boat before it sinks.
Observation/ Analyse We put the shape into the water and put coins on it and it sink. I think it happened is because it was bigger on the sides and it sunk.
Conclusion (What I discovered about floating/ sinking )
This is my science writing that our class did with room 20.
