Duct Tape Boats!

At the beginning of March we started to build Duct Tape Boats. First we watched a video of Myth Busters. They made a sailboat only using Duct Tape and metal bars. Here it is:

Then we watched another video and then we started to plan. We had to draw a picture with our group on a practice piece of paper. Then we picked an animal to ride in our boat. Then we started to build our boat the next week. -Cole

First we build the frame. Then we covered them in duct tape. Then we put a sail or a propeller on them. Then we put fancy duct tape on them. We could only use cardboard, popsicle sticks, wire, a rubber band, duct tape, pipe cleaners, skewers, and hot glue. -Jonathan

We tested our boats after we were done everything. One of the boats had a leak. We tested them in our water table. We are going to put them in the puddles when all the snow melts. -Dylan W
