Pirate Ships/Floating and Sinking


We have enjoyed playing some pirate games. We played a pirate version of 'Duck, Duck, Goose' and we also played a treasure collecting game. We even tried to take treasure from other pirate crews. Then we thought about a pirate ship and what it needed to do. We collected sticks and used wool to attach them together, by weaving, to create a ship. We then tested them to see if they floated. Some of us even added a sail and used the power of wind to move our ships across the water.
