Boat or Submarine

Title  Boat or Submarine  

Question/Goal/ problem
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.
